Osage Nation Archaeologist Visits

Today an archaeologist working for the Osage Nation in Oklahoma visited our site to make an assessment about possible Osage presence.  He spent about two and half hours touring the site and interviewing us.

My impression upon his departure is that he was conflicted by what he found.  He thought that there were a number of non-Osage characteristics.  Specifically, he thought the terrain was unusual; a steep slope and minimal water view.  He also remarked on the large variation of construction shape and size. And he observed that the large number of cairns in one spot is outside his experience.  He expects to get a report in front of the Osage Committee within a month or two and then we might get a better idea if the Osage had a part in its creation.
