The National American Woman Suffrage Association adopted her as a symbol of women’s worth and independence. They erected several statues and plaques in her memory, and doing much to spread the story of her accomplishments.
Lewis and Clark’s original journals mention Sacagawea by name seventeen times, spelled eight different ways, each time with a “g”. Clark used Sahkahgarwea, Sahcahgagwea, Sarcargahwea, and Sahcahgahweah, while Lewis used Sahcahgahwea, Sahcahgarweah, Sahcargarweah, and Sahcahgar Wea.
Sakakawea /səˌkɑːkəˈwiːə/ is the next most widely adopted spelling, and the most often accepted among specialists.
