Discussion of "Indians of Iowa" by Lance Foster 11/15/2011 time: 6:00 p.m. location: Sioux City Public Museum. 607 4th Street
Published in 2009, Indians of Iowa is described as “the only book for the general reader that covers the archaeology, history, and culture of all the different native nations that have called Iowa home from prehistory to the present.” The book is available for purchase in the Museum Store, however, all are welcome to the discussion, even if they haven’t read the book.
I recently moved from Helena, Montana, where I grew up, to White Cloud, Kansas where my tribe is based. I am an artist and an anthropologist/archaeologist, and live simply here with my wife Lisa. I help my tribe out with cultural and historic preservation, serving as the THPO for the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska. My new Nemaha blog is dedicated to the land and people of the Nemaha. It is where most of my blogging will be taking place, beginning in November 2013. I will update my other blogs occasionally as well.
