"The Memorable Journey" Sacagawea and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Hetty Gray July 1, 9:00 – 10:00, Room Tech B
Clad in authentic dress and accompanied by a dog that portrays Meriwether Lewis' Newfoundland Seaman, listen as she describes her life and involvement in one of the most famous expeditions in American history. Hers is more than the story of an interpreter. Hers is the poignant tale that begins with tribal life in the west before America's westward expansion and culminates in the arduous trek led by true American heroes. Replete with details of the trip and its hardships, Sacagawea's story provides her audience with the viewpoint of a young woman from one culture working alongside men from another culture as they worked for a common goal. Facts abound, but humor adds zest and paints history as far more than a list of events and dates. History, in fact, is personal. Immerse yourself in the story of Sacagawea. Hers truly was "The Memorable Journey."
