Ancient Midwestern Immigrants: Willing and Unwilling

The role that immigration played in the formation of Cahokia is explored in this proposed book. Drawing on unpublished data, this study reveals that immigrants at Cahokia included people from at least two separate locations. Their impact on the community is examined. The results will be used to develop a model of the relationship between cultural diversity and political change in pre-Columbian North America.
