Modern people are very interested not only intheir own history, but in the history of other cultures. In Missouri and NorthAmerica in general, common questions about non-European-Americans are oftenframed as, “What tribes lived around here?” or “what tribe does this artifactbelong to?” These and other complex questions will be addressed in this brownbag lunch by John Peterson, archaeologist and Jackson County Parks &Recreation Historic Sites Curator.
