The remains of the most sophisticated prehistoric native civilization north of Mexico are preserved at Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site. Within the 2,200-acre tract, located a few miles west of Collinsville, Illinois, lie the archaeological remnants of the central section of the ancient settlement that is today known as Cahokia.

Monarch Butterflies

THE MONARCHS ARE ON THEIR WAY NORTH!

Inching Northward
The migration moved into Missouri and Kansas after hovering below latitude 36°N for the past 2 weeks. The first monarch for Kansas was a pale and weathered butterfly spotted on April 7th.
“My first thought upon seeing how washed-out it looked is that it must have traveled quite a distance,” wrote Marva from Wichita.
Assuming the butterfly flew from Mexico, it has traveled 1,300 miles this spring!

The monarchs that overwintered in Mexico are in the final month of their lives. How far north will they travel? News from the west: “We have monarchs!”

10 Native women you should have learned about in history class

#womenshistorymonth #HonorNativeLand #decolonizeyourmind
"Throughout history, Native American women have always served as leaders, healers, artists—and anything else they wanted to be. But you wouldn’t know it from reading most history textbooks. Pocahontas and Sacajawea usually appear in them somewhere, but all too often their stories take a supporting role to dominating white male narratives."
"Native women don’t just need a page in our U.S. history textbooks. Or even a chapter. They need the whole book, and then some."

Native women have always served as leaders, healers, artists, and anything else they wanted to be.

Minnie Hollow Wood (Lakota) rode against the US military at the Battle of the Greasy Grass (Little Bighorn), and was one of the few women to earn the right to wear a warbonnet for her valor in battle. After being imprisoned at Fort Keogh, Minnie married a Cheyenne man and settled on the Northern Cheyenne reservation.

What you need to know about hummingbird feeders and nectar.

Hummingbird migration is in full swing, so it's time to get our feeders out of storage, give them a good cleaning, and fill them with the "nectar" recipe recommended by hummingbird experts throughout the hemisphere.

Now booking school field trips for spring!
In the log house visitors will experience pioneer life in the 1800s; students will learn about the immigrant woman's struggle with nature in the new country, the influence of Native American food-ways on her lifestyle, the items and traditions she brought from Europe, and their impact on Native American communities.

Everything is back in place in the log house and it looks as cosy as can be, and more fragrant than ever - fresh Sweet Annie is doing its best to impress visitors. We know it's not going to look like this at the end of our fall programs, but till then, hundreds of kids will get to enjoy it and remember it as the place where time stopped. Thank you Montessori School of Bowling Green for being the first ones to cross the threshhold of the house after this big upgrade, hope to see you back soon!

#HonorNativeLand #decolonizeyourmind
Washington, D.C.—Conceived by artist Jaime Black (Métis), "The REDress Project" is being shown in the United States for the first time at the National Museum of the American Indian on the Mall.

Black will present a performance art piece at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington on March 21 at noon.

The symposium, "Safety for Our Sisters: Ending Violence Against Native Women," follows (on Mar. 21) from 2 to 5:30 p.m. and will be available to view online.

According to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Native American women are ten times more likely to be murdered and four times more likely to be sexually assaulted than the national average. Yet the issue has received little attention outside Indian Country. Artist Jaime Black (Métis) calls attent...

Why recreating artifacts may be the future of archaeology | Season 2019 Episode 03/09/2019 | PBS NewsHour

Have you ever heard of an archaeologist who burns, hammers or smashes artifacts? That’s what Metin Eren does, except it’s with replicas. Eren is a rising star in the field of experimental archaeology. In his lab at Kent State University, he tests recreations of early stone tools, trying to understand their purpose and design--and what those meant for human development.

Spring is almost here, and that means young wildlife could start showing up in our yards soon. It's always best to leave wildlife in the wild, and wildohio.gov/staywild has tons of great tips on what to do if you find a truly injured or orphaned animal... but these situations can sometimes be prevented. Here are some things you can do now to keep young wildlife safe this spring!

1. Check for nests before cutting down trees or clearing brush. Autumn and winter is the best time for such outdoor maintenance to avoid the breeding season.

2. Cap chimneys, vents, and window wells to prevent animals from nesting there or getting trapped. See the Nuisance Wildlife page for more information: http://ow.ly/uByi30iIic6

3. Keep pets under control so wildlife is not unnecessarily injured.

4. Educate friends and family members about the importance of respecting wild animals. They are not pets and will not behave as pets even if tamed.

Death by Civilization

#HonorNativeLand #decolonizeyourmind
Two hundred years ago this week, Congress passed the Civilization Fund Act of 1819. It marked the start of an official government program that authorized Christian missionaries to set up boarding schools for Native Americans aimed at teaching them “good moral character.” In effect, the policy legalized the forcible separation of Native American children from their parents, and the schools were designed to erase as much of their cultural identity and heritage as possible, often through violent and traumatic means.

Thousands of Native American children were forced to attend boarding schools created to strip them of their culture. My mother was one of them.

'One in a million' yellow cardinal spotted in Alabama

Auburn University biology professor Geoffrey Hill said the cardinal in the photos is an adult male in the same species as the common red cardinal, but carries a genetic mutation that causes what would normally be brilliant red feathers to be bright yellow instead.

Auburn University researcher says the cardinal is yellow due to an extremely rare genetic mutation.
