Sacagawea, a SHOSHONE

     also (both her children were raised by Capt. Wm Clark : q.v.) Jean Baptiste `Pomp' Charbonneau, Lizette Charbonneau; (key guide and interpeter for the Lewis and Clark expedition); (it is controversial whether Sacagawea is Hidatsa for `bird woman' or Shoshone for `boat pusher'; although shown as dying when still very young, a rumor was started in 1907 that she survived into old age); (eponym of the Sacagawea Dollar)

    External page: When Captains Lewis and Clark negotiated with the Shoshone, Sacagawea translated Shoshone to Hidatsa which her husband could understand; he translated Hidatsa into French for the Corps' Francois Labiche, who finally translated into English. The process was reversed to respond to the Shoshone.

     Born:  Idaho abt. 1787    Died:  1812
