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.

The powerful emotion and purpose that drives this feature film will grab hearts everywhere — and not let go. With the harrowing and rugged backdrop of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the “look and feel” of this film will rival The Revenant … And, its awe-inspiring landscapes and magnificent, epic beauty, will remind us of the momentous and unforgettable production of Dances With Wolves.
Sacajawea, The Windcatcher, is the untold story of the brave woman who accompanied the Corps of Discovery. Though most of us have heard her name, her life has never been depicted in a feature film. After more than 200 years, we are privileged in our generation to finally know the heart of this great spirit. For we have given her a voice and through her eyes, we will see history as never before.
Sacajawea is a mystery, yet she is relevant for today. She walked with joy and she walked with pain… from her deepest, darkest cave, we will learn about the power of light.
This film is based on a true story and inspired by the journals of the Lewis & Clark expedition.
