The Arizona Connection to Sacagawea

December 13, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free

Beginning with a short overview of the epic 1804 journey of Lewis and Clark, Weber then focuses on the little known history of Sacagawea’s son, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau.  Jean Baptiste Charbonneau was born on the expedition, adopted by William Clark, and went on to become one of the most interesting and foremost figures in early Arizona history. Clad in period clothing and displaying the tools and accoutrements of the time, Weber also explains what explorers and guides carried and utilized as they traveled through the desert and wilderness territories.

 

SB - Todd Weber - WEBAt a young age Todd Weber became enthralled with the stories of the fur traders, American Indians and explorers in American history. Through years of reading journals and studying historical accounts of the fascinating characters of America’s past, he became well-versed in the facts and details of this time in history. Along with being an artist and jeweler, Weber has worked as an Elderhostel coordinator and instructor. He now guides small ships on the Columbia River and in Alaska, and leads his own tours, sharing his appreciation for the stamina, ingenuity, and character that existed in those who helped shape the American West.
