Third-graders Take Field Trip to Sunwatch Village

As part of their study of Native Americans of the Northwest coast, Kim Walden and Rebecca Harnage’s third-graders recently visited Sunwatch Village, a reconstructed Fort Ancient Native American village located near the Great Miami River. The village was discovered during archaeological excavations in the 1970s. Sunwatch Village is now operated through the Dayton Society of Natural History. Harnage said third-graders will study Native American populations across the country, moving from coast to coast. “This trip gave us a chance to have a closer look at the Native Americans who lived near Cincinnati,” Harnage said. “We enjoyed walking in their footsteps while observing the excavations and artifacts.”
