Directory of Oneota Scholars
The Directory of Oneota Scholars brings current information on individuals researching the Oneota cultural group into a single location. Upper Mississippian Oneota archaeological sites date from circa AD 1000 to the mid-1700s and are known mainly for their presence in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa, but sites are also found in Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Indiana, and Michigan. There is a great deal of variation among Oneota sites, depending on time of occupation, region occupied, and resources being exploited. Because of this variety seen in Oneota sites and the different geographic areas where artifacts have been found, it can be difficult to parse out who currently studies or has previously studied the Oneota and what has been published on Oneota archaeology. This project serves as a directory of these scholars and lists their names, publications, areas of research interest, current institutions of employment, and in some cases their website. This goal of this directory is to provide graduate, undergraduate, and individuals with Master’s degrees or PhDs with a resource for finding other scholars studying the Oneota.
