Rozina George:
My name is Rozina George. I’m honored and proud to be talking about Sacajawea, one of the most famous women in history. I’m a great, great, great, great niece of Sacajawea. I, like Sacajawea, I’m a Agaidika Shoshone. Originally I’m from Salmon, Idaho.

On today’s Turtle Island Storytellers, Rozina George tells of her great great great great aunt, Sacajawea, who was captured as a child, and then reunited with her family as a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Arlie Neskahi:
Among Native people in North America, the “arts” were inseparable from other aspects of everyday life. Tools, clothing, and dwellings were fashioned with great care and close attention to detail. Special effort even went into rarely seen works that were used only on ceremonial occasions. Nowadays, our society is full of things mass-produced from synthetic materials, while in contrast, Native American artisans made things from what existed already in their natural world, such as wood, stone, hide, clay, tusk and shell. Today, in Artist’s Circle, Bruce Crespin takes a look at some of the traditional cultural arts of the Lemhi Shoshone.
