Horizontal Archipelago: People and Power in the Tallgrass Prairies

Americans today often think of the middle West as a homogenous natural landscape. But before it became the corn belt, this region was home to to one of the most ecologically and culturally distinctive transition zones in North America, the tallgrass prairies. In this presentation, I'll discuss the interesting environmental history of the region, and explore how our region was both the product and shaper of an important and often misunderstood indigenous history at the time of European contact.
