A Shoshoni chief, and Sacajawea's long lost brother.
Sacajawea's husband, a French-Canadian trapper and trader. The Lewis and Clark Expedition hired him as an interpreter of Indian languages. Charbonneau—who, at 46, was by far the oldest man on the expedition—amazingly survived the rigorous journey, and lived to age 80. He was constantly causing problems and getting into accidents on the expedition, however. Charbonneau acquired Sacajawea from the Hidatsas, who had captured her, and made her one of his several Native American wives.
Along with Lewis, one of the captains of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, which between 1804 and 1806 explored the Louisiana Territory. Clark went on to help develop Missouri.
Sacajawea and Charbonneau's son. Also called "Pomp" (First-Born in Shoshoni), the infant Jean Baptiste rode on his mother's back throughout the Lewis and Clark Expedition's 8,000-mile journey. Clark offered to finance the boy's education, and paid for Jean Baptiste to go to Europe with Prince Paul of Wurtemburg; he came back speaking four languages. He later served as a well-known guide in the Great Plains and Rockies during the first half of the 19th century.
Along with Clark, Lewis served as one of the captains leading the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-1806).
One of Toussaint Charbonneau's wives, a Native American woman.
