Another event in conjunction with the exhibit "Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country" will be held in Ablah Library at 7 p.m. today (Tuesday, Feb. 5), followed by a reception and refreshments.

David Hughes, associate professor of anthropology, will present "Islands in the Sea of Grass: Native Settlements of the Great Plains."

The talk focuses on Great Plains settlement from the time the first people arrived on the Plains and how the rivers and lakes that cross or dot the Plains played a dominant or controlling role in the establishment of Plains cultures for the past 100 years.
