Converging Cultures

The 1600s began the land conflict and commingling of cultures among indigenous Native Americans and the European settlers that ventured here. The Shawnee people and their language are honored in their traditional Wegiwa. General George Rogers Clark’s Western Campaign to take the Northwest Territory, as well as his founding of Louisville and Clarksville are chronicled. Be mesmerized by the Lewis & Clark at the Falls of the Ohio film, where you are immersed with the Falls men who shaped the nucleus of the Corps of Discovery’s great westward expedition, and returned to the Falls in 1806.
