Event Description

O.W.L.S. programs are designed for “boomers” or older, but anyone can attend. No registration is required unless you would like to attend the optional luncheon that follows the program for just $7.50.

Sakakawea, Sagagawea, “Bird Woman”, or “Janey”: Shoshoni Girl/Woman of History — however you pronounce it or spell it, this strong young woman had a unique place in the history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806. What is myth? What is fact? What is fiction? One Sacagawea, or two? Guide, Interpreter, Wife, or Slave? Join Beverly Hinds as she answers these questions. A picture of a fascinating young woman emerges from what the past almost 200 years of records have told the world about her.

Menu: Taco bar with toppings, rice and beans, watergate salad.
