Can you imagine what she thought as her moccasins took each harrowing step? Rain pounded her head with no cover for 26 days. Her baby was hungry and she fed him. The men were starving and she showed them where to find wild vegetables. She wore vermillion on her face because it said to other tribes, “We come in peace.” This saved all their lives.
Sacajawea was kidnapped, abused, enslaved, and traded as property. Yet, when she finally made it to the Great Water, she found the unselfish strength to pray that we would remember something — “The Earth is our Home and we are One.”
This is the purpose of Sacajawea and why she’s brought her message forward to a world in need of remembering. She made a powerful effort to get our attention, and we are so very privileged to give her a voice.
