We are very grateful to the Florida Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for supporting us with the CARES Act Grant + the Additional CARES Act Grant. These grants provided us the opportunity to pay bills for the insurance (six months), the bookkeeper (six months) and the 10-hr position Administrative Assistant from October through February (five months). Without their support, we could not have operated smoothly through the challenging time of COVID-19. From ALL of us: sincere THANK YOU to the Florida Humanities Council and National Endowment for the Humanities!

In Pursuit of Florida's Paleo Hunters
February 27, 2021 10:00 a.m.
Travel back into the last Ice Age and learn about Florida’s first people with David Letasi, Paleontologist and Archaeologist. Discover how they survived climate change and giant predators. Who were the archaeologists that discovered these early hunters’ artifact sites? Compare the artifacts found here in Florida to those found around North America. Were there people living here before the Clovis Tradition and what is the Solutrean Theory? What was their origin? These controversies will be examined, and actual Paleoindian artifacts studied.
