Hidden within our landscape is the Native American concept of sacred geography. Our place names and many popular locations carry this concept forward to the present. Indigenous groups quietly maintain some of the sites while they vocally call to preserve others from the bulldozer. This lecture will introduce some of the national and local sacred geography concepts and describe a few local sacred sites people can visit.
