Events and Talks

Have an interest in archaeology or want to know how to explore a career related to archaeology? Let ARI archaeologists walk you through the local history and how we explore that history. Our talks and events will give you an inside look at what archaeologists do, how we represent Native Americans as people with a past, and how to practice stewardship of our historical sites and natural resources.

Intro to Archaeology Talk 

Archaeology is the study of humans through the “stuff” that they left behind and can answer questions about trade, technology, food, habits, or past environments. In this talk, our archaeologists will discuss archaeology as a science, common misconceptions, and the research that ARI conducts at the Guard Site in Dearborn County, Indiana.  

Age Recommendations: 
Recommended for 8+ 

Length: 
30min-1 hour 

Activity Level: 
Minimal- seminar style with presentation and questions following or throughout 

Archaeology Career Talk 

This talk, given by archaeologists, gives a broad overview of archaeology as a discipline and a deep dive into archaeology as a career. Our archaeologists will discuss the education requirements needed to become an archaeologist, career options, and the reality of the discipline. A background or interest in geography, social sciences, history, and science is recommended for students who wish to be an archaeologist. 

Age Recommendations: 
Recommended for 13+ 

Length: 
1-1.5 hours

Need a speaker? 

We offer the possibility for one of our archaeologists to travel to themed events, such as lecture series, classrooms, libraries, or organizational meetings to give seminar-style lectures to your group or the public.  

We have previously done talks such as “Archaeology in Your Backyard” (Hamilton County Library – Harrison Branch), “Building Communities: Public Archaeology of an Early Fort Ancient Village” (Cincinnati AIA Society), “Careers and pathways in Archaeology (Jobs for American Graduates Program – Lawrenceburg H.S., Seymour H.S.), and “Archaeology of the Tristate: Prints of my Ancestor’s Houses” (NKU Guest Speaker Series).

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT STATEMENT:

The Archaeological Research Institute (ARI) recognizes that the land we study and steward is the homeland of many peoples. We acknowledge the myaamia (Miami), Shawanwa (Shawnee), Peewaalia (Peoria), Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo) and the multitude of nations who call this their homelands.  

ARI recognizes the violence inflicted upon the indigenous Nations of the Ohio Valley, including their forced removal following treaties such as Fort Finney and Greenville. ARI condemns the intentional destruction of their languages and cultures. ARI condemns the continuous discrimination against the living Native peoples throughout the United States.  

ARI recognizes that these peoples are not of the past, but are vibrant living nations. ARI recognizes that Native Americans are a diverse, resilient people with a deep enduring history worth knowing.  In that light ARI extends our respect to all Native peoples both past and present.
