Sacajawea and Pomp

Sacajawea was a Lemhi Shoshoni Indian born near Salmon, Idaho around 1790. She was the only Idaho native, and the only female, to be a member of the famed Lewis and Clark "Corps of Discovery" expedition that opened up the American west. Sacajawea carried her infant son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau (nicknamed "Pomp" by William Clark), in the grueling expedition from the Mandan village at present-day North Dakota over the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean and back. She proved to be indispensable to the success of one of the greatest explorations in all of American history. This monument is dedicated to Sacajawea whose bravery, strength, and resourcefulness earned her a permanent place in American history.

Significant funding for this monument was provided by the school children of Idaho through the "Coins for Sacajawea" educational program. This project was also partially funded by grants provided by the Idaho Governor's Lewis and Clark Trail Committee and the Idaho State Historical Society. Private donations from individual provided major funding for the Sacajawea Monument. We would especially like to recognize noted historians Dr. Carol Lynn MacGregor of Boise, Idaho, and Mr. Kenneth Thomasma of Jackson, Wyoming for their generous contributions. Idaho corporations made notable contributions to help create the Sacajawea Monument. We would especially like to acknowledge Washington Group International, Inc. of Boise, Idaho.

We would like to thank the Sacajawea Monument Committee for their dedicate work on this project:

Mr. Don Riley - Chairman Mr. Charles Fisher - Vice-Chairman Mr. Kevin E. Talbot - Secretary
