Lunch 'n Learn: "Native Peoples of Jackson Co. & Surrounding Region"

  • Truman Memorial Building 416 West Maple Avenue Independence, MO, 64050 United States (map)

Modern people are very interested not only in their own history, but in the history of other cultures.  In Missouri and North America in general, common questions about non-European-Americans are often framed as, "What tribes lived around here?" or "What tribe does this artifact belong to?"  These and other complex questions will be addressed in this brown bag lunch by John Peterson, archaeologist and Jackson County Parks & Recreation Historic Sites Curator.    Bring your own lunch!  Dessert and drinks are provided!
