In 1804 Sacajawea met Lewis and Clark. Because of her bravery they made it through the journey. If it wasn't for this brave Indian the journey might not have been a success!
Many people think that Lewis & Clark asked Sacajawea to go on the expedition. Actually Lewis & Clark asked her husband to go, but when they found out he was useless they saw what Sacajawea could do!
Sacajawea went on the Expedition with her husband & Lewis & Clark. The Expedition lasted two and a half years. Sacajawea was a great help on the Expedition because she knew many thing about nature.
How Sacajawea helped on the Expedition
Sacajawea was a huge help to the explorers. Sacajawea could help because she was often used as a guide & a translator. She also knew what foods were safe & which foods were not.
