Mo. conference to focus on American Indian history
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- About 250 scholars from around the world are gathering in Springfield for a conference on American Indian history.
The Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/Sy639s ) reports that the National Conference of the American Society for Ethnohistory began Wednesday and ends Saturday. It's titled "Apocalypse Now."
The event will feature sessions on the history, anthropology and sociology of native peoples of the Americas.
Attendees will be able to tour several historical sites in the area, including Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, the site of Civil War fighting. They can also visit the Delaware Town archaeological site. From 1821 to 1830, members of the Delaware tribe lived at the site along what is now known as the James River in Christian County.
