Song For Teaching American History - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley

This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's Westward Expansion Songs


Sacajawea, a lovely Shoshonean maid....
Never knew of her contribution
To all of the people whose lives she would save
Going with Clark and Lewis.......
Seeking a way to the Pacific Ocean
She traveled by horse and by foot and by boat and
She never complained
Though her body and soul ached
For her family....

Sacajawea .... Shoshonean princess.... kidnapped
From her father, a chieftain
Sold as a slave to a young Minitari brave....
Then sold once again
To her husband, Charbeneau, then met the tall white men
Lewis and Clark and they wanted to find then
The Pacific Ocean and needed Shoshonean horses to ride on.....

Sacajawea and her baby, Pomp, were the guarantee
Of protection
As they would travel through Indian territory
In their strange procession......
Indians, knowing they never took women and children to war
When they saw the 2 men and the woman and child
They would know they were traveling peacefully....

So as they traveled along they met many tests...
But answered the call
And pursued and traveled and then finally opened the West
Where they surmounted all....
With Sacajawea, the lonely first woman
To open the West.....
She would always be known as the
Guide and the famous explorers’ protection and good friend!!!!
