Gary Keeton
presents a program on the various archaeological sites within six miles of the Great Yellow Springs and Glen Helen, Ohio. Including the grave of Techumseh, iconic folk hero in American, Indian and Canadian history. The site of the wigwams of Techumseh's mother and father and his birth place, the capital city of the Shawnee Nation. And the site of a Kentuckian's leap to freedom across a gorge while being pursued by Indians, the Willaimson's Mound, rock shelters and the mound in Glen Helen, where Simon Kenton survived running a fierce Indian gauntlet in 1778.
Gary Keeton has been recognized for his work as an interpretative naturalist by the Congress of the United States, by the State of New York Assembly, by Sullivan County, New York, by the Upper Delaware River Heritage Commission and by the Orange County Land Trust.
He has served as an interpretative guide for our public education tours of the Paleolithic environment at Dutchess Quarry and has also organized and led tours of other significant archaeological sites.
Gary’s knowledge of extinct and extant environments have made him in demand as a lecturer to public school groups as well as historical societies.
By serving as liaison between the New York State Museum and the landowner, Gary was instrumental in the successful in 2009 the recovery of the Tuckamoose mastodon tusks by the museum. The Tuckamoose mastodon tusks are the second largest tusks and the oldest, at 14,000 years old, found in New York State!
