We often have a preconceived notion of the pristine, bison-covered prairie, awaiting the arrival of Native Americans who centered their life around the herds until Euro-Americans arrived and extirpated both bison and Indians, while destroying the prairie. But is this accurate? What do the data and archaeology say about this narrative of the prairie, people and bison in Northeast Illinois?
