This 3-actor educational reenactment focuses on a third figure central to the famous historical expeditionA childhood servant of Clark, York was crucial to the journey’s success. York hunted for food, smooth relations with Native Americans, cared for the ill, and discovered new plants and animals throughout the trek across America. York was also responsible for striking a friendly relationship with Sacagawea, daughter of a Shoshone Chief and wife of Toussaint Charbonneau, the French fur trader hired as an interpreter for the journey. This performance teaches children the value of tenacity, strength, and perseverance found in two often-overlooked, unsung heroes of the great Lewis and Clark expedition.
