    Thank you so much for the idea, it is for my daughter age 10 for school and she as to dress like Sacajawea she was a shoshone girl Indian, she helped Lewis and Clark so she could be a guide she could tranlate and help them with food. If it was not for Sacajawea Lewis and Clark might not have made it from the east to the west or even to the pacific ocean.
