Sacagawea and Lewis and Clark
Lewis and Clark were exploring the land that America got from the Louisiana Purchase. They were traveling on the Missouri River. They wanted to find people who could help guide them. They asked Sacagawea and her husband to come with them to help them talk to other Shoshone Indians. She helped them gather and cook food, get horses and other trade items from other tribes and helped them make peace with other tribes.
She had one other child who was named Lizzie who died during childhood. William Clark helped raise her son. She died in 1812 in St. Louis, Missour.
