GoddessLife's Woman of the Week Wednesdays - Native American Sacagawea

It's GoddessLife Woman of the Week Wednesday! Here at GoddessLife HQ, we feature a woman who embodies the highest possible expression of her nature. Honoring the brilliance in other women will help all of us on our path to living our own true potential.

In honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday, we chose to feature the inspiring Native American Sacagawea.  Sacajawea, was a Lemhi Shoshone woman, who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition, acting as an interpreter and guide, in their exploration of the Western United States. She traveled thousands of miles from North Dakota to the Pacific Ocean between 1804 and 1806. The National American Woman Suffrage Association of the early twentieth century adopted her as a symbol of women's worth and independence, erecting several statues and plaques in her memory, and doing much to spread the story of her accomplishments. In 2000, the United States Mint issued the Sacagawea dollar coin in her honor, depicting Sacagawea and her son.
