Fort Pitt MuseumThose interested in material culture of native Americans won’t want to miss the Eastern American Indian History Conference at the Fort Pitt Museum in Pittsburgh later this month.

Held April 28 and 29, the conference is dedicated to examining the lives and material culture of the original inhabitants of the region east of the Mississippi River during the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. In addition to the speakers, a limited number of juried tables will be available for artisans who create historical replicas and for educational displays.

The Fort Pitt Museum, located in historic Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh, is a 12,000- square-foot museum that  tells the story of Western Pennsylvania’s pivotal role during the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh. The strategic location of the fort – at the Forks of the Ohio River – helped to shape the course of American and world history.

Information on the event is available here.
