INDIANA DUNES NATIONAL PARK: Have you admired the survival abilities of the Native Americans who have lived in this region for thousands of years? Then, celebrate Native American History Month and learn more at Indiana Dunes National Park’s Douglas Center on Sunday, November 7 from 12:00 pm–3:00 pm. 

One of the early skills necessary for survival was that of flint knapping to make arrowheads and other stone tools. Watch a park ranger demonstrate this specialized skill and view some completed arrowheads. Afterwards, take a short hike to look for the natural materials needed for these tools. 

Meet at the Paul Douglas Center for Environmental Education, located at 100 N. Lake Street in the Miller neighborhood of Gary, Indiana. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Park, call 219-395-1882 or visit the park's website

Located in Northwest Indiana, the park includes 15 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and 15,000 acres of biodiverse beaches, woods, prairies, and marshes. Over 2 million visitors come to the Indiana Dunes each year.
