Archaeology Month - September

Indiana’s Archaeology Month Celebration at Strawtown Koteewi Park

Our tradition of celebrating Indiana’s Archaeology Month continues in 2023 at Strawtown Koteewi Park! We will host a variety of opportunities for groups and individuals alike. Our activities will bring to life the daily events of Strawtown Koteewi Park’s original inhabitants by combining the research gleaned from 15+ years of archaeological investigations with historical and contemporary accounts of the life-ways of Indiana’s Native peoples. Demonstrations will be paired with hands-on opportunities for visitors of all ages. The various activities are sure to engage all the senses while also educating our patrons about Native American culture and history!
