Sacajawea's Capture and the History of the Early West
6:00 PM
Idaho State Museum
Enjoy a free presentation at the Idaho State Museum by Elizabeth Fenn, Pulitzer Prize winner and Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lecturer. In this illustrated slide-lecture, Fenn uses the circumstances of Sacajawea’s capture to illuminate a deeper history of the northern plains and Rockies. Fenn discusses indigenous warfare, hunting techniques, environmental conditions, horse-borne interactions, and plains power dynamics as they pertained to a one-month period of Sacajawea’s life. This lecture makes the deep history of the West accessible to broad audiences.
