Archeology Day - Caddo Culture Pottery

Meeting Place: Nature Cabin
10:00 am - 10:45 am
Admission: Free
Long ago, the land in and around Hot Springs belonged to the Caddo people, an indigenous group whose ancestral land include Southwest Arkansas, Northwest Louisiana, Eastern Texas, and Eastern Oklahoma. The ancestors of today’s Caddo had a long history in Southwest Arkansas that can be traced at least to the late first millennium A.D. They were skilled hunters, farmers, and salt makers. They were especially known for their pottery. The Caddo used different forms of pottery such as bottles, bowls, and jars. They also decorated their pottery using different designs. Members of today’s Caddo community, such as Jeri Redcorn, continue the pottery making traditions of their ancestors. Join park staff for a talk over the Caddo people and their pottery. This program is held at the nature cabin and will last about 45 minutes.
