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 years
and 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.
