Native Americans of East-Central Indiana Book Release and Signing

July 9, 2016 @ 4:00 am - 8:00 am

Muncie, IN—Native Americans of East-Central Indiana book, the newest addition to The History Press’ American Heritage Series, was released on June 6, 2016 by local author Chris Flook.

 

Flook’s book, which is the first of its kind to explore the history and archaeology of Native Americans within East-Central Indiana, hit bookshelves this month just in time for those celebrating Indiana’s bicentennial year; but with a new viewpoint.

“The history of East-Central Indiana, Indiana, and all of the Midwest is overwhelmingly Native,” said Flook. “More often than not, the Native experience is pushed to the backdrop with the scenery. It is my hope that Native Americans of East-Central Indiana will reassert the importance of Native American history as the history of Indiana.”

Join him on Saturday, July 9, from 8 a.m. to noon, in The Orchard Shop for a book signing event, and to discover the history and archaeology of Native American History in East-Central Indiana.

Flook is a lifelong resident of Muncie, Indiana. He is a lecturer of telecommunications at Ball State University where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in video production web design, motion graphics, and documentary filmmaking.
