Celebrating Native American Heritage with Maps

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) will be presenting a class for the community to commemorate Native American Heritage Month.  The class will be held at the Cornerstone Center for the Arts in the second-floor Founders Room on Tuesday, November 11 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The presentation, Native American Heritage Month:  A Celebration in Maps, will feature maps detailing the history of Native Americans near Muncie, around present-day Indiana, and the United States.  The maps cover topics like the shrinking range of the buffalo, Lenape villages on the White River, and Native American resistance and feature prominent Native Americans like Tecumseh, Sitting Bull, and Sarah Winnemucca.

The Cornerstone Center for the Arts is located at 520 East Main Street in downtown Muncie.  The class is free and open to the public, and free parking is available.
