Experience more than 19,000 years of American Indian history in the Ohio Valley Region at this special two-day event featuring more than a dozen American Indian interpreters from federally recognized tribes.  

At Meadowcroft’s Monongahela Indian Village, watch American Indian interpreters perform daily tasks like their ancestors and learn how Ohio Valley tribes lived off the land.  

Visit the 1770s Historic Village to learn more about life in the 18th century and their relationship with European settlers in the region. 

Shawnee tribal members will be on hand in the 19th-century Historic Village to discuss their forced removal west of the Mississippi River in 1831-1832 due to Andrew Jackson’s American Indian Removal Acts. 

The event is held in partnership with the Fort Pitt Museum and sponsored by Rivers of Steel.
