It has been more than 500 years since the beginning of the European invasion of the Americas. At the moment of contact, the people who had been native to the Americas were forever changed, and this change spread like a wildfire from the point of contact. Who were the people living on the Central Gulf Coast of Florida before the moment of contact and how did they see their world? Join artists and storytellers, Hermann Trappman and Elizabeth Neily as they explore the environmental history of Florida and examine the archaeological evidence left by Florida’s first people.
