This course introduces the early people known as Paleo, Archaic, Woodland, and Mississippian Indians who began the story of this land with the objects and artwork they left behind. Tools made of stone and animal bones surface in farm fields and on riverbanks. Beautiful clay vessels that have stayed intact for centuries and curious pictures painted and pecked onto cave walls reveal the ingenuity, intelligence, and humor of people who came before. As the descendants of these people begin to settle and form permanent homes, the evidence of their societies laid claim to magnificent monuments such as the sky-reaching mounds dotting Arkansas.

Because of the ever-expanding United States of America, indigenous tribes were forced to move to what is dubbed "Indian Territory" by way of the heartbreaking, multi-route Trail of Tears.
