Sacajawea - Interpreter for Lewis and Clark

Sacajawea (Sacagawea) was the only woman with the Corps of Discovery expedition.  She served as an interpreter for Lewis and Clark and was with the famous explorers when they reached the Pacific Ocean.

More memorials are dedicated to her than to any other woman in American history - yet no one is sure of her exact appearance.

Did she die at an old age (in Wyoming) or did she die young (in South Dakota)?
