Indigenous Peoples' Day Event at the Michael Schwartz Library:
Please join us for a free illustrated lecture by CSU Anthropology professor Dr. Phil Wanyerka on the native peoples of the Cuyahoga Valley.
The arrival of the first peoples to the Cuyahoga Valley some 13,000 years ago marked the beginning of a long and enduring Native American presence here in Northeast Ohio. Since the mid-19th century, archaeologists have been exploring the Cuyahoga Valley in order to examine and investigate the native peoples who called this valley home in one of the best-defined archaeological regions in Northeast Ohio. Dr Wanyerka has been investigating the ancient prehistory and spectacular cultural achievements of the prehistoric peoples of the Cuyahoga Valley since the 1980s. Join him as he presents an illustrated lecture on the prehistory and archaeology of the Cuyahoga Valley.
