Where Does The Name "Sacajawea" Come From?

Posted by Sacajawea Hotel on Apr 18, 2019 8:00:00 AM

We’re talking about a lot more than just the name of a hotel here—when it comes to icons of American history, Sacajawea ranks near the top. Most people familiar with the history of the western states know the name well, aware of her for her contribution to the flowing river of exploration and expansion in this country. The checkered past between European invaders and native peoples finds a brief moment of peace in the chapter of her story that involved working with the Lewis & Clark Expedition.

But who was Sacajawea, really? And how did she help shape the Missouri Headwaters Region that we know today? Her story goes far deeper than just her role as an interpreter and guide for the Corps of Discovery. Read on to find out more about the woman who helped shape the country’s history.

There is a little place in a little town, tucked away in a big state, that will absolutely change the way you think about food. That little place is Pompey’s Grill.
