-Long before Boone County, Kentucky was the bustling county that we know it as today, Native Americans roamed this area and farmed along the Ohio River and through its land. The Native Americans lived in the Ohio River Valley between 2500 and 1800 years ago during the Woodland period. The first primary Native American culture in the Boone County was the Adena Culture also known as Moundbuilders. They were called this for the thousands of burial mounds that they built around the area which played an enormous role in their social, economic, and religious lives. The Adena peoples were mobile hunter-gatherers so they did not settle in one place for long periods of timecontrary to the mounds where they buried their loved ones and their valuable belongings. The other primary Native American tribe that settled in Boone County during the Woodland period was the Fort Ancient hunter-gatherer-farmers also known as the Prehistoric Farmers. This group of Native Americans lived here for more than 700 years. They took advantage of the richfertile farm land and built villages along the floodplain and thick forests. Both the Adena and Fort Ancient cultures also used the salt licks and springs as a natural resource for food and survival.+**Grades: 4-6**
