Strawtown Earthwork in Central Indiana Determined to be Oneoto Sioux

Strawtown Hopewell Earthwork Determined to be Oneoto Sioux in Central Indiana


The Strawtown earthwork was excavated by IPFW in Fort Wayne, Indiana and their conclusions        were that the earthwork was Oneoto Sioux in origin. This earthwork had been plowed for many yearsand its original contours diminished.  The archaeologist replaced the earth when finished; leaving no apparent signs of an excavation. The earthwork at Yorktown, Indiana looks similar in design to Strawtown, also on the White River and may also prove to be Oneoto in origin.
