Water Wednesdays Brown Bag Talks: We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat: Life in the Florida Everglades
Bring your lunch and join us at Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center as we explore water from the perspective of expert speakers. Join Sara Ayers-Rigsby from the Florida Public Archaeology Network in this presentation about the Florida Everglades. Before roads and modern canals were built, people lived on tree island sites in the Everglades and traveled throughout South Florida in canoes. Learn how archaeologists interpret information and work with Florida’s Indigenous communities to help tell the story of our state’s past.
Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Date/time: January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented By:Sara Ayers-Rigsby, Director of Florida Public Archaeology Network
