One of the most important things she did was that she translated so they could get horses so they could travel over the mountains. Another reason she is a hero is that Sacagawea eased meetings with Shoshone becase she's a woman. She also saved all of Lewis and Clark's furs, maps and journals when their boat was capsized.
