Join us on March 24 at 5 pm MST as our Midwestern Regional Director Philip Millhouse presents “Native American Mining in the Upper Mississippi Valley: Industrial Production, Conflict and Dispossession Across the Lead Mining Frontier.”

This lecture will focus on the critical role of Native American lead mining in the Upper Midwest where the Meskwaki and Ho-Chunk conducted mining operations on an industrial scale. The mines eventually drew thousands of prospectors that resulted in tensions leading to the Winnebago and Black Hawk Wars. In this upcoming lecture, Phil will discuss Indigenous mining history in the upper Midwest and the subsequent treaties that led to the forced removal and dispossession of Native Americans.

There are two ways to attend live. To attend via the Webex digital event platform, you can register at this LINK.  You can also participate via livestream by visiting our Facebook page.
