Sacagawea comes to History Alive on Sunday

November 18, 2018 GMT

HUNTINGTON— Make plans Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Cabell County Public Library, 455 9th Ave., to see history come to life starting at 2 p.m. This edition will focus on Sacagawea and her journey in accompanying Lewis and Clark throughout their journey.

Sacagawea, the young Native American woman traveled west in 1805. She has inspired countless enduring myths and legends. More monuments stand in her honor than to any other woman in American history, yet she spoke no English and was only 16 years old with an infant son when she joined the Lewis and Clark’s expedition. In this history come to life portrayal, guests can hear her story with important, often overshadowed details.


The program is presented in costume and includes an opportunity for audience questions/comments.

Mary Dailey is a teaching artist in the West Virginia public school system, a West Virginia Humanities “History Alive!” presenter, and a performing musician with the Appalachian vocal duo, Little Sparrow.

History Alive has brought to life the lives of Benjamin Franklin, Minnie Pearl, and Eleanor Roosevelt. These performances are presented to children and adults alike to help them gain a better understanding about historical figures and their lives.
