In celebration of Kentucky Native American Heritage Month, archaeologist Dr. Gwynn Henderson of WKU's Kentucky Archaeological Survey will discuss the history of the diverse Native American peoples of Western Kentucky as told through objects, places, and documents. The period she will consider extends from around 10,000 B.C., when the first peoples arrived in what we now call Kentucky, through the early A.D. 1800s, when Federal Indian policy forced Native groups living east of the Mississippi River to move from their homelands.

Her presentation is part of the McCracken County Public Library's Evenings Upstairs lecture series.
