Sara Edlin-Marlowe


A dramatic presentation compiled from journal entries, historical accounts and monologues from William Borden’s opera, Sakakawea (University of North Dakota). After the dramatization, Edlin-Marlowe explains the facts and fictions surrounding Sacagawea’s life and her “real” role on the journey with Lewis and Clark. She includes stories surrounding her name, her life after the journey, and the debate over her death. Needs: overhead projector or slide projector with carousel, a sturdy black music stand, and a room capable of being darkened.
