Monthly Meeting Report – August, 2013

Our speaker in August was Phillip Garwood, the award-winning Cape Fear Community College instructor who recently published a book about the little known tribe of native people known as the Cape Fear River Indians.

It was fascinating to hear about his collection and the adventures he’s had aquiring it. Who knew that the Paleo Indians lived as much at 100 miles from the current shoreline.

The best take-away was that if you see a rock on the ground in the Lower Cape Fear it just might be an Indian tool because there are NO NATIVE rocks around here.

We have high hopes of working with his students to rework our exhibit on local Native Americans.
