Native Plant Society meeting

April 26, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Thu, 05/09/2013 - 7:00pm

The Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT) will host a lecture about plants used by Native American Indians presented by Curtis Carter at 7 p.m. on May 9 at the Harberger Community Center, 701 Narrow St in Weatherford. Please note the change in location from last month. The public is welcome.

Curtis Carter has been an educator in public schools for 24 years and current teaches biology at Springtown High School. He has had a life-long fascination with Native American culture and history, specializing in Cheyenne material culture of the 19th century. As an avid replicator and experimental archeologist, Curtis researches, makes and then uses the tools, clothing, foods, etc., used during the mid-1800s. As an experimental archeologist, he has a high degree of insight into the daily lives of Plains Indian people from this time period. An important part of Plains Indian life was the use of plants from their environment. Ethno-botany of the Plains Indian culture has become an integral part of his research. Throughout the year, he shares his knowledge at schools, museums, historic sites and other venues. He will be discussing the use of several plants used by Plains Indian people, focusing primarily on yucca.
