Additional Event Details


Mel Zabecki is the education outreach coordinator for the Arkansas Archeological Survey and is based out of the survey’s coordinating office in Fayetteville. She works with teachers, students, museums, libraries, and other station archeologists all around the state to make archeology more public by giving talks, presenting hands-on activities or teaching others to present these activities to the wider public. During her previous job as a park interpreter at Parkin Archeological State Park, she spent years experimenting with growing, gathering and processing native ingredients that American Indians would have included in their diets. In her talk, Mel will introduce the audience to the foodways of the Mississippian Indians of Arkansas and talk about the finer points of processing some ingredients that are no longer part of our modern diet.
