On August 15th, 1805, the expedition encountered the Shoshone tribe while traveling up the Missouri River. That day, Sacagawea was reunited with her brother, Cameahwait, who had become chief. Through their beautiful reunion, she convinced the tribe to provide additional horses and guides to the expedition.

Toward the end of the expedition, Lewis and Clark began taking more of Sacagawea’s advice on what routes to take. She and her family returned to the Mandan-Hidatsa villages in 1806 and officially left the expedition.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much information on Sacagawea’s life after the expedition. When her son turned five, she and Toussaint brought him to St. Louis, Missouri, and left him with Clark, who cared for him and gave him an education.

Sacagawea was said to have given birth to a daughter named Lisette in 1812. Although there is no specific documentation that details the end of her life, some historical figures recorded that she died due to illness that same year.

Sacagawea will always be remembered for her bravery and the services she did, which were invaluable to American history.
