“ECI Native Americans” – 7/8/16
It’s only natural in this Hoosier bicentennial year to look at the history of Indiana’s first inhabitants as well as the settlers. A new book from Chris Flook, “Native Americans of East-Central Indiana,” should help fill in some of the gaps and is available at Minnetrista and local bookstores. Flook joins us on Indiana Weekend from the writing table on his back porch to talk about some of the compelling stories and distinctive figures who helped shape the state’s future.
