September programs at Pine Island Public Library

August 27, 2012
Pine Island Eagle

Next month's roster of activities at Pine Island Public Library offers topics for all ages.

The following activities/ events are free to the public:

ADULTS

Calusa Legacy

6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 19

Cindy Bear, Coordinator of Programs and Services at the Randell Research Center, will provide an overview of the Calusa people and their ancestors, who lived along the shores of Pine Island Sound for thousands of years.

The story of the Calusa people is one of a remarkable civilization thriving along the shores of a rich and bountiful estuary and building power and an economy based on their fishing technology.

These Native Americans engineered a remarkable canal through Pine Island, developed a rich artistic tradition, and perplexed Spanish missionaries with their unique spirituality. This presentation will provide an overview of the Calusa civilization and include information on the methods archaeologists and historians have used to piece together the story we know today.

Recently, archaeologists have conducted new excavations at the Randell Research Center and Cindy will highlight these new areas of archaeological investigation and how they are furthering our understanding of this remarkable culture and their ancestors.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Pine Island Library.
