MORRIS BART SR., LECTURE SERIES AT THE J: ARCHAEOLOGY OF LOUISIANA INDIANS
Native Americans in Louisiana lived in dynamic environments shaped by water, including the water flowing through the Mississippi River and other streams. Native Americans have lived in Louisiana for thousands of years, they adapted to diverse environments, and they shaped the landscapes in which they lived by constructing monuments made out of earth. In this talk, Chris Rodning, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Tulane University, will explore some of the remarkable earthen monuments built by Native Americans in Louisiana in the past, and some of the material culture that archaeologists have found at Native American settlements here. Lunch will be served. RSVP by Thursday, December 8 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 x161 or rachel@nojcc.org.
