Not Even Past: The History of Tallgrass Prairie and Bison in Northeastern Illinois
Many think of the pre-history of Illinois as that of an untrammeled prairie wilderness, covered with bison. When the Native Americans arrived, they hunted and came to depend on the bison for everything needed. These lifeways continued until the arrival of the Euro-American farmers who put the land to new uses, and ended the tallgrass prairie and the reign of the bison forever. But its not that simple. Join Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie Archaeologist and Tribal Liaison Joe Wheeler as we explore what the paleo-environmental and archaeological record say actually happened here. Pre-registration is recommended but walk-in registration at the door is welcomed. Hosted by the Oswegoland Heritage Association in partnership with the Oswegoland Park District. $5.00 (R)/(N). Suitable for ages 16+.
