Part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Sloan Museum. This presentation will provide an overview of the prehistoric past in the Flint region and will be geared to a general audience. We will explore the ways that archaeologists find artifacts and use them to reconstruct the lifeways of Michigan’s Native people from their earliest presence in our region, about 12,000 years ago, until the early historic period when Euroamericans and Afroamericans settle here. The results of the recovery efforts at the Stone Street Ancestral burial site, an ancient cemetery dating to 1000 to 1500 years ago, will be highlighted in the presentation.

Dr. Smith is an archaeologist who specializes in the analysis of artifacts and bones, both human and non-human and was the Principle Investigator at the Stone Street Ancestral Recovery and Repatriation project in Flint. She has worked in the Upper Great Lakes region for more than 30 years on a variety of archaeological sites. Register today.
