Frog Bay in Wisconsin is the first-ever tribal national park
This pristine land on Lake Superior sits at a crossroads of the Anishinaabe people — and ice caves are nearby.
Frog Bay Tribal National Park is the country’s first tribally owned or controlled park that’s open to the public. The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Anishinaabe) created the park on Wisconsin’s Bayfield Peninsula in 2012 after reacquiring an 89-acre parcel. In 2017 a second 86-acre plot was procured, doubling the park’s size.
Middle Cumberland Archaeological Society’s first 2022 meeting will be a field trip to Castalian Springs Mounds State park at 10 am on SATURDAY, MARCH 5. Kevin E. Smith of Middle Tennessee State University will lead the tour at the mound site. Length of the tour will depend entirely on the temperature – probably plan on an hour.
Founded as a small village around 1100 ce, the native peoples of Castalian Springs embarked on massive-scale construction projects to transform the community into the largest mound center on the Cumberland River east of Nashville. By 1300 ce, the site was a center of religious revitalization and artistic renaissance dominating what is now Sumner County and known throughout the Mississippian world.
Over a decade of MTSU archaeological excavations have revealed a detailed picture of the community – along with evidence for the production of negative painted ceramics, marine shell gorgets, fluorite jewelry, and much more. Kevin Smith, who has led investigations of the site’s history and prehistory for nearly four decades, will guide the tour and provide the newest interpretations. After a hiatus of excavations due to the pandemic, Paul Eubanks (MTSU) plans to resume fieldwork this summer to examine the last remaining major earthworks at the site.
RSVP: If you plan to attend the tour, please email or leave a voicemail for Kevin Smith with your name, number in your party, and contact number/email: email@example.com or 615-898-5958.
Here’s my 2022 itinerary ~ hope you’ll join me, or meet me there, or make some monthly visits on your own. If i’m missing a good site, please let me know — tom <tasc(at)tennasc.org>. Thanks.
• discuss repairing damage (1877 trench cut into it by white archeologist), • renaming native sites with native names, • find age of big tree stump.
(i think a better name for it is Tvpvsvnv Mound (
(tuh-puh-sha-nuh) = dragonfly) for the unique dragonflies found there on Spring Creek.)
