From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Glacial Kame Culture were Native Americans known as the Archaic peoples that occupied Southern Ontario, Michigan, Ohio and Indiana from around 8000 BC to 1000 BC. They got their name from their practice of interment of their dead on top of hills of glacial gravel. Burial sites included ornaments of copper and marine shells. Extensive trade networks existed at this time.

Other regional cultures include the Maple Creek Culture of southwestern Ohio, Red Ocher Culture and Old Copper Culture of Wisconsin.

For a time, it was thought that the Glacial Kame Culture did not produce ceramics, but this understanding was disproven by the discovery of basic pottery at the Zimmerman Site near Roundhead, Ohio.[1]
