SunWatch, a partially-reconstructed 13th-century American Indian village located along the banks of the Great Miami River, invites the public to visit some of the best flint-knappers and craftsmen from around the region.

Flint-knapping is a technique of striking and chipping stone into tools and weapons. The art form has been revitalized in recent decades and practitioners create arrow heads, spear points, drills and lithic art among other useful and decorative items.

It will be an amazing weekend and we are expecting a great turnout. Signs will be posted around the site about practicing safe social distancing while outside, and a one-way directional pattern through the museum will be implemented through our indoor exhibit,” said SunWatch Site Manager Taylor Hoffman.

The weekend’s visitors will observe artisans as they craft the stone tools, and items will also be available for purchase. The village and indoor interpretive center will be open promising something for the whole family.

Water and other beverages will be available for purchase inside the Gift Shop.
