Archaeologist and author Jeffery Girard will be giving a presentation about the Caddo Indians and their ancestors. Jeffery will walk us through the centuries of change and adaptation of this wonderful culture and people. He will explain the cultural importance and provide a glimpse of what life was like for the ancient Caddo Indians. Taking an archaeological perspective on the past, The Caddos and Their Ancestors traces human cultures in northwest Louisiana from the end of the last ice age, through the formation of distinctly Caddo culture in the 10th century A.D., and into the early 19th century when Caddo culture was supplanted by the formidable influences of the emerging modern economic and political world. Event is also highlighting Jeffrey's new book, The Caddos and Their Ancestors.
