{portland} washington’s sacajawea

August 30, 2015

During our Washington Park adventure, we visited Hoyt Arboretum then rode the free shuttle over to see the Sacajawea statue. According to various websites, this bronze Sacajawea statue by Alice Cooper was the first. It was unveiled at the Lewis and Clark exhibition in 1905 to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. She is particularly important to women’s activist groups who have adopted her as a symbol of fortitude and importance of women in American history.
