You’re invited to Settling Ohio: First Nations and Beyond, Feb. 21-22

The first people in Ohio arrived more than 13,000 years ago. These Native Americans overcame rapid changes in climate, eventually building the state’s first homes and becoming the state’s first farmers. More than 200 years ago a series of events and actions began to shape the state of Ohio we see today — its government, its economy, and its people. Empires clashed and diverse peoples mingled.

Hear from historians, scholars and the Chief of the Eastern Shawnee. The Settling Ohio conference is Feb. 21 and 22 at Baker Center. It is free and open to the public.
