Sacagawea Meaning
Probably from Hidatsa tsakáka wía meaning "bird woman". Alternatively it could originate from the Shoshone language and mean "boat puller". This name was borne by a Native American woman who guided the explorers Lewis and Clark. She was of Shoshone ancestry but had been abducted in her youth and raised by a Hidatsa tribe. Sacagawea originates in Native American languages and means "dragging the boat". This was the name of a legendary woman from the Lemhi Shoshone tribe, who joined the Lewis and Clark Expedition in the Western United States as an interpreter. As a feminine given name it is very rare in the United States these days.
