A flint knapping program will take place at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore’s Paul H. Douglas Center on Saturday, July 22, and on Saturday, August 5, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Native Americans like the Potawatomi Nation made all of their own tools and weapons for their survival. Watch the technique of making various types of points by a park ranger and learn about what shapes were made for various purposes. 
The Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education is located in the western portion of the national lakeshore at 100 North Lake Street, about one mile north of U.S. Highway 12 in the Miller neighborhood of Gary.
