Eugene, Oregon


A special TAC Festival presentation about Sacajawea






Program summary:
Join Tony Farque, Archaeologist for the Sweet Home Ranger District, Willamette National Forest, as he explores the histories of four cultural groups in search of her story. What was her name? What were her contributions to the expedition? What happened to her after the expedition ended? What became of her son, Pomp? Why is there controversy over her image on the American dollar? She is one of the most famous women in American history and yet we still struggle to understand who she was. Overlooked Tribal histories provide balance for current Anglo centric answers as to her life story. Come listen and draw your own conclusions. A display of period historic items and replicas will be on site for viewing.
