Northwestern State University Professor of Archaeology Dr. Hiram F. Gregory will moderate two panel discussions at the Colonial and Post-Colonial Ceramics of the Mississippi Delta Symposium Friday through Sunday at the Eola Hotel in Natchez, Miss. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Gregory will lead a discussion on “Tribal Efforts to Revitalize Ceramic Traditions,” and an open discussion on ceramic revitalization.

The symposium is a follow up to the 2002 “French Colonial Pottery: An International Conference” held at the Tunica-Biloxi Tribal Headquarters in Marksville. The proceedings of that conference were edited by former Northwestern State faculty member Dr. George Avery and published by the NSU Press.

The Williamson Museum at Northwestern State is a co-sponsor for the conference along with the National Park Service, the Cane River Creole National Historical Park, Natchez National Historical Park, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, Cane River National Heritage Area, Mississippi Department of Archives and History, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Houston and University College London.

Funding for the symposium is provided by the Lower Mississippi Delta Region Initiatives of the National Park Service with assistance from the Cane River Creole National Historical Park and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
