Her short life on Mother Earth was not one of choice, but one of destiny, and her legacy to the people today and future generations is her contribution to unity and peace among nations." (Lemhi Shoshone descendants) Rededication of this plaque commemorates the 200th anniversary of Sacajawea's return to the Lemhi Valley.
