Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
60 Mile Walk Highlights Ohio Indian Mound Sites.
Listen to the Story
Ohio has no Indian reservations, but it does have ANCIENT Native American ceremonial sites. And Saturday, about 25 people are planning to begin a 60-mile walk from one site to another. It’s being billed as the first such walk in 500 years. Richard Sheels is helping organize the trek. He’s an associate history professor at the Ohio State University Newark campus, and he explains the walk, in an interview with Ohio Public Radio’s Bill Cohen.
He says the U.S. Department of the Interior has recommended that the United Nations designate the ceremonial mounds at Newark and Chillicothe as a World Heritage Site. That would honor it as one of the world’s most important historical places.
