Presented by Donald J. Blakeslee

This presentation looks at Kansas in the era before Columbus. Consider what was not here: no cities, no roads, no mechanization, no domestic animals other than the dog. It is easy to imagine that the small human communities that occupied Kansas for thousands of years would have existed in relative isolation, focused on hand-to-mouth existence--but nothing could be further from the truth. The prehistoric inhabitants of Kansas traveled widely, even to central Mexico; traded with the Pueblo people of the Southwest; and included people interested in such arcane subjects as meteors and meteorites and were part of a continent-wide intellectual tradition.
