Our perceptions of Sakakawea, correct or incorrect, are
informed by the many ways she’s been portrayed in the
past. She has been popularized in books, statues, and
cinema, most recently by Mizuo Peck in Night at the Museum
and its sequel. She’s been memorialized by having a river,
a lake, numerous mountain peaks, and two US Navy
vessels named in her honor. Two American postage
stamps bear her image, as well as a United States dollar
coin. She has been used in advertising to represent
everything from commercial dye to an insurance company
and even the State Historical Society of North Dakota.

Do you have pictures of yourself or someone you
know with a representation of Sakakawea?
We would love to see them!
