Join The Field Museum to learn about the Chicago area and its long tradition as a crossroads where diverse cultural groups and ideas have come together.

Hear local archaeologists and historians discuss Chicago’s prehistory, early history, contemporary Native American communities and the cultural significance of the bison in Cook County, now our National Mammal.

A Q&A will follow the presentation and artifacts recovered from the Forest Preserves will be on display and more. Welcoming remarks will be delivered by Toni Preckwinkle, President of the Forest Preserves of Cook County.

This event is free, but space is limited. Please register early! You can register at fpculturalhistory.eventbrite.com.
