Experience the ingenuity and challenges of native peoples who occupied this part of Illinois just prior to Statehood in 1818. Follow the Sauk and Meskwaki through a year of daily life as they hunted, trapped, farmed, mined, and traveled, all in harmony with the changing seasons and the resources on which they relied for their basic way of life.
