Tristan Arnold of Minooka, along with his friend Ray Fraser, will host the 19th Annual Fox Valley American Indian Artifact show from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 6 at the American Legion Post 489 at 9054 E. Veterans Parkway, Route34 in Yorkville, just east of Route 47.
Exhibits will focus on a wide variety of Native American tools, weapons, and personal adornments, some of which go back thousands of years.
The show is sponsored by the non-profit Illinois State Archaeological Society.
A recent collector bequeathed his collection to Arnold, so now Arnold’s collection includes more recently obtained arrowheads and spear points from the Briscoe Mounds area in Channahon and from what is now the the Minooka-Channahon Dollinger Farm area.
Area residents may bring their own collections for display or have them appraised. Admission to the show is free.
