Photograph of a view of a statue of Sacajawea and Jean-Baptiste, by Alice Cooper, located in Washington Park, Portland, Oregon, ca.1905-1915. The statue is mounted on a large rock. Sacajawea, standing in a walking stance, has her right arm extended and pointing upwards. She has her baby (Jean-Baptiste) on her back. A plaque to describe the statue (or its importance?) is embedded into the rock. An outhouse (or gazebo?) is situated between several trees in the background. Sacajawea was a guide for the Lewis and Clark expedition. "Unveiled July 6, 1905; Moved to Washington Park, April 6, 1906" -- unknown author.; "There is no known image of Sacagawea that was made of her during her lifetime, so no one can be sure what she really looked like. Yet because the Shoshone woman has been the subject of so many sculptures and paintings, especially since about 1900, we have a rich heritage of artists' conceptions to contemplate. Meriwether Lewis, in his journal entry for August 19, 1805, left us a brief description of the general physical appearance of the Shoshone people, including their manner of dress. Some artists have taken it into account, others not. Visual images of Sacagawea will be the primary focus of this episode, and more will be added to the gallery as we acquire them. But some short essays also will be introduced from time to time. Topics will include her name -- its spellings, pronunciations, and possible meanings; her role in the Lewis and Clark Expedition; her life, character and death; and the history of the controversies surrounding the largely fictitious persona that scant facts have engendered. To begin with, we can shed some light on the long and increasingly bitter history of the noun by which Lewis and Clark occasionally referred to her in their journals -- squaw." -- Joseph Mussulman.
