Caddo Nation 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 Archeological team surveys thousands of acres of forestland near Ball, La. http://redriverradio.org/post/archeological-team-surveys-thousands-acres-forestland-near-ball-la <p>A U.S. Forest Service&nbsp;archeology&nbsp;team is&nbsp;canvassing a&nbsp;large&nbsp;portion of the&nbsp;Kistachie National Forest&nbsp;in&nbsp;search of pre-historic camp sites and&nbsp;larger habitations.</p> Fri, 09 Mar 2012 14:46:04 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 7981 at http://redriverradio.org Archeological team surveys thousands of acres of forestland near Ball, La.
