Sacagawea, the daughter of a Shoshone chief, was born circa 1788 in Lemhi County, Idaho. She was from the Agaidika tribe, a branch of the Shoshone, and grew up in Idaho’s Lemhi Valley. At around age 12 she was captured by Hidatsa Indians, an enemy of the Shoshones and later sold or won in a gambling game by a French-Canadian trapper named Toussaint Charbonneau who made her one of his wives at the age of 16 in the spring of 1804.
