From “the interpreter’s squaw” to “Madonna of her Race”

Garry Bush’s presentation charts the 215-year journey of Sacagawea and how the young Shoshone was transformed into a social and political heroine. What forces altered American perceptions? The role of the women’s rights movement, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, the end of “The Frontier” plus the 1905 Portland World Fair combined to revise how we think of this special Native American woman. History is a creation that changes as we do, and this presentation might change your perceptions. This presentation is made possible the North-Central Idaho Speakers Bureau, The Retired Educators of North-Central Idaho, and Idaho State Historical Society!
