The Tavlor Center of Natural History is pleased to welcome the author of “Iono ‘On’ the Tooth: Dental Evidence of Diet” Dr. Christopher W Schmidt Professor &, Chair of Anthropology and Director of the Bioarchaeology Laboratory at the University of Indianapolis for this enlightening presentation. The people of Indiana prior to colonization had a deeply engaged approach to their food attainment strategies. In this talk, Dr. Schmidt discusses dental evidence for these dietary shifts and the subtle but important differences between the diets of men and women. Overall, innovative subsistence practices and dietary habits helped people overcome the challenges of foraging and farming.
This presentation discusses the study of human remains, but it does not include skeletal images. It does not seek to exploit, appropriate, or patronize indigenous peoples. It’s aim is to provide a certain perspective on history, and it does not replace indigenous historical accounts by indigenous peoples
