Learn about the childhood of Sacagawea, one of the first female all-stars in American history—and honored in US currency on the dollar coin.

Sacagawea was a Lemhi Shoshone woman who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition, acting as an interpreter and guide, in their exploration of the Western United States. She traveled thousands of miles from North Dakota to the Pacific Ocean between 1804 and 1806 and greatly contributed to the process of peace negotiations and navigation.

In this narrative biography you’ll learn about Sacagawea’s childhood and how her early experiences equipped her to play an influential role in American history.
