Lewis and Clark Expedition

  • Sacagawea was pregnant with her first child when the Corps of Discovery arrived near the Hidatsa villages to spend the winter of 1804–05.

  • Charbonneau and Sacagawea moved into the expedition's fort a week later.

  • In April, the expedition left Fort Mandan and headed up the Missouri River in pirogues.

Lewis and Clark Expedition

  • On May 14, 1805, Sacagawea rescued items that had fallen out of a capsized boat, including the journals and records of Lewis and Clark.

  • By August 1805, the corps had located a Shoshone tribe and was attempting to trade for horses to cross the Rocky Mountains. They used Sacagawea to interpret and discovered that the tribe's chief was her brother Cameahwait.

Lewis and Clark Expedition

  • The Shoshone agreed to barter horses to the group, and to provide guides to lead them over the cold and barren Rocky Mountains.

  • The trip was so hard that they were reduced to eating tallow candles to survive.

Lewis and Clark Expedition

  • On the return trip, they approached the Rocky Mountains in July 1806.

  • While Sacagawea has been depicted as a guide for the expedition, she is recorded as providing direction in only a few instances. Her work as an interpreter certainly helped the party to negotiate with the Shoshone.

Later life

  • After the expedition, Charbonneau and Sacagawea spent three years among the Hidatsa before accepting William Clark's invitation to settle in St. Louis, Missouri in 1809.
