In this illustrated slide-lecture, Organization of American Historians (OAH) Distinguished Lecturer Elizabeth Fenn uses the circumstances of Sacagawea’s capture to illuminate a deeper history of the northern plains and Rockies. Fenn discusses indigenous warfare, hunting techniques, environmental conditions, horse-borne interactions, and plains power dynamics as they pertained to a one-month period of Sacagawea’s life.  

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
