Etzanoa: Uncovering the Great Settlement

Date: September 6, 2018, 5:30 PM
Venue: First United Methodist Church - 122 N 8th, Salina, KS
Sponsor: Smoky Hill Museum

The Event:

Dr. Donald Blakeslee will be speaking about the exciting archeological discovery. Spaniards called it the Great Settlement, while a native name for the town was Etzanoa. This ancient settlement in southern Kansas was home to more than 20,000 ancestral Wichita Native American people. Blakeslee will share why he decided to look for this city and how he gathered and deciphered clues. What’s been found and learned at this site is changing the way scientists understand Pre-Colonial Native American society in the Kansas – Oklahoma area. Blakeslee willl also share information about the initial dig and what they’ve found so far, as he works to uncover one of the largest Native American cities in North America. Blakeslee is an author and professor of archeology at Wichita State University.
