Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center
The Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center is dedicated to honoring and providing education about America’s great historical heroine, Sacajawea (a member of the Agaidika (Salmon Eater) Shoshone-Bannock Tribes) and her role in the Corps of Discovery. Cradled in the Lemhi River Valley between the Salmon River and the Beaverhead Mountains, the Center lies in the heart of Sacajawea’s homeland. There is much to see and do at the Sacajawea Center for all ages and interests throughout the year!
The 70-acre park is located just 2 miles east of downtown Salmon, Idaho where the Interpretive Center is open daily Memorial Day through Labor Day. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the summer visit the Outdoor School onsite, where ancestral living skills classes and demonstrations take place. Learn how to shape a piece of stone into an arrow point or turn a plant stem into rope (cordage). Watch our instructors build a reed shelter or tan a deerskin to shape into moccasins.
