Bob will discuss some of the early archeological work that was undertaken in the early 1960’s as the lake was constructed and show examples of artifacts from the area, explaining their function and how they were used in everyday life.

This presentation is in celebration of Native American Heritage Month and for Indigenous people across the country giving a chance to share the unique ancestry, traditions, and contributions their communities make today and have made throughout history.
