The 2018 discovery of the "Lost City" of Etzanoa near Arkansas City sparked renewed interest in the Indigenous peoples who thrived in these lands. How are these early sites, like Etzanoa that flourished between 1450-1700, located? And how do archaeologists develop a plan of action, engage with Indigenous tribes with connections to the area, and process a dig site? This talk will uncover the early history of Kansas archaeology and how more recent findings are reshaping our understanding of native peoples who inhabited this land now known as Kansas. Presented by Destry Jackson.
