This program includes interviews with Craig Woodward of the Marco Island Historical Museum, which highlights the history of the Calusa Indians, and Dr. Rachel Wentz, head of the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) East Central Region. Now that the museum has been built, it is hoped that many Calusa artifacts, currently housed in other states and countries, can be returned to the state of Florida.

With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, FHC grants primarily respond to the needs of local communities, but they often address topics of statewide interest. FHC is particularly interested in projects that are collaborative, attract diverse audiences, encourage active participation from the public, and explore humanities topics and disciplines in interesting and engaging ways.
This project is sponsored in part by The Jessie Ball duPont Fund.
