History

Sacajawea, as all of Oregon's schoolchildren know, was the wife of Toussaint Charbonneau, the Frenchman hired by Lewis and Clark to lead them across the west. Although Charbonneau was supposed to know his way, Sacajawea, a Shoshone Indian, wound up being the real guide. Charbonneau was relegated to the role of interpreter. This park and school are named in Sacajawea's honor. The statue of Sacajawea in Washington Park was the first statue honoring a woman to be unveiled in the United States.
