Women's Sacajawea Maiden Costume
Of the many notable Native Americans in history that have aided travelers in exploring and mapping the wilderness of new American territories, Sacajawea stands out as one of the most well known. Learn about her legacy with this Sacajawea Costume, a look inspired by the famous Native American explorer.Sacajawea is best known for her invaluable contributions to the famous expedition led by Lewis and Clark in 1804. She joined the team of explorers a few months into the journey, and as the expedition's guide, she taught them how to survive and navigate in what is now the American Northwest. She also helped them establish relationships with Native American tribes in the area, and has the distinction of being the only woman to travel with Lewis and Clark's party all the way to the Pacific Ocean, and then back to the expedition's starting point. She was even made an Honorary Sergeant in the Regular Army for her contributions to the success of the mission!This costume probably won't be able to stand up to the rigors of a two year long, cross-country expedition, but the faux suede material looks great when you're wanting a Native American inspired style for a costume party or event. The dress and apron accessory feature fringed hemlines, and ribbon accents printed with geometric patterns for added detail. Slip on a pair of matching fringed shoes or boots to complete this look!
