When the Corps came around them he sat Clark down
on a white robe and tied white shells resembling pearls in Clark's red
hair. Then the men took off their moccasins and smoked the pipe that
went around as a sign of peace. When they held a council they had
Sacagawea interpret. But then she jumped up and hugged Cameahwait.
In turned out that the Chief was her brother.
That is when Sacagawea found out that everyone
in her family except her brother and her nephew had died. The Chief
promised to trade for horses and that was a big help to the Corps.
