 A Slightly Misremembered Past: People and Bison on the Northeast Prairie Peninsula

Brown Bag Program presented by Joe Wheeler, Prairie Archaeologist and Tribal Liaison with the Forest Service, Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie

Wednesday, August 21, Noon-1:00 pm

Research & Collections Center, 1011 E. Ash St., Springfield, IL

Free and open to the public

 

We often apply a mental template of a pristine past, with the bison-covered prairie, fresh from a cleansing glacial scour, awaiting the arrival of Native Americans who centered their life around the herds until Euro-Americans arrived and extirpated both bison and Indians, while destroying the prairie. But is this accurate? What do the data and archaeology say about this narrative of the prairie, people, and bison on the Northeast prairie peninsula?

 

Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield. The Collections Center must be accessed via the gate on Ash St. and approached from 11th Street or further east due to the rail closure at Ash and 10 ½ Streets. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
