Poverty Point http://redriverradio.org en Native American galleries open at Shreveport museum http://redriverradio.org/post/native-american-galleries-open-shreveport-museum <p>Two Native American galleries are set to open at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport. They feature the Poverty Point culture and the Caddo Nation. The museum constructed a glass case to display a 30-foot long canoe constructed of a single bald cypress tree dating back 1,000 years. It was found on the banks of the Red River in 1983. A seven-minute documentary explains how it was preserved. The opening reception is Saturday, Oct. 20, from noon to 4 p.m. Fri, 19 Oct 2012 14:56:29 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 18718 at http://redriverradio.org Native American galleries open at Shreveport museum History Matters: Insights into Poverty Point http://redriverradio.org/post/history-matters-insights-poverty-point <P>Commentator Gary Joiner offers a primer of the Poverty Point culture in northeast Louisiana near the town of Epps.
