About This Site

This site is designed to provide accurate, up-to-date information about the Native Americans of Pennsylvania for K-12 teachers, students and other interested persons. The desire to create this website stemmed from research carried out by David Minderhout and Andrea Frantz that showed a lack of educational lessons and resources on PA Native Americans.
