Born in the Lemhi River Valley around 1788, Sacajawea, an Agaidika Shoshone, was the only female member of the Lewis and Clark "Corps of Discovery". She joined the expedition at the Knife River Mandan Village in North Dakota and traveled to the Pacific Ocean and back with her infant son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. She passed through her homeland in August of 1805. Sacajawea's bravery, strength, and resourcefulness have earned her a notable place in history.
"Sacajawea's traditional and cultural teachings helped her to persevere on the arduous journey that has brought her recognition by her people as an ambassador. Her short life on Mother Earth was not one of choice, but one of destiny, and her legacy to the people today and future generations is her contribution to unity and peace among nations." (Lemhi Shoshone descendants)

Rededication of this plaque commemorates the 200th anniversary of Sacajawea's return to the Lemhi Valley.
