Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center...

We learned of the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center while at the Craters of the Moon. This place, located in the birthplace of Lewis & Clark's invaluable guide, interprets the rich cultural and natural history of the Salmon and Lemhi River Country, detailing the unique place this area holds in our nation’s history.

Here we learned more about the life and importance of Sacajawea, as well as her people, the Agai’dika Shoshone-Bannock Tribes.

And our timing was perfect for the annual Father’s Day Shoot at the Outdoor School! We got to experience hatchet throwing, archery and the pre-bow sport of Atlatl shooting. Wow.! We even had the opportunity to be in a fur trading camp with historians who really knew their stuff and we're willing to tell us all about life in the wilderness in the 1800s.

And the snacks of the day were tasty, too!
The history lessons we keep learning are making the road an unforgettable classroom!

I love history and would have liked to have been there too. Did you try the Pemmican and Pilot Bread? I have a survival book that tells how to make it. Love the fish sculptures jumping out of the stream...was Steve able to split an apple in two with the hatchet?
