Two one-week workshops for seventy-two schoolteachers on the ancient Hopewell Indian culture of eastern North America.

The Creative Learning Factory at the Ohio History Connection seeks support in the amount of $179,596.05 for a Landmarks of American History and Culture workshop entitled "Following in Ancient Footsteps: The Hopewell in Ohio." The goal of the program is to increase Summer Scholars’ knowledge and understanding of the cultural heritage of American Indians by introducing them to noteworthy Ancient American sites in Ohio: the Newark Earthworks, Fort Ancient, Hopewell Culture National Historical Park, and Serpent Mound. By visiting these internationally-significant sites in connection with scholarly discussions, Summer Scholars will gain an appreciation for the complexity of ancient American Indian culture and gain expertise in the use and interpretation of historic sites.
