Jenna Bradley and Robert Cornett found a canoe believed to be made by the Caddo Nation that has been excavated from the bank of the Red River.
An ancient Native American canoe that is between 800 to 1,500 years old was unearthed recently in the bank of the Red River in Louisiana.
The canoe was found half-buried on a steep riverbank and was carved from a single tree trunk. It is 33-and-a-half feet long, about two-feet wide, and two-feet high. It’s likely made of Cypress, although the wood hasn’t been identified yet, WGNO reported.
Each year in September, Pettigrew State Park celebrates Indian Heritage Week with a series of displays of Native American artifacts and demonstrations of their customs in honor of the original inhabitants of our state. This celebration at the park is possible because of the recovery of a remarkable set of Indian artifacts at Lake Phelps.
In the spring of 1985, an extensive forest fire in the vicinity of Lake Phelps was fought with water pumped from the lake, resulting in a lowered water level – much below what had been the normal level for some time. Dry weather during the remainder of that year and in succeeding years kept the lake level below normal.
In the fall of 1985, fishermen began reporting artifacts that were now visible on the lake bottom through the shallow, crystal clear water. A number of these, including partial and whole clay pots and stone objects, were collected and deposited at Pettigrew State Park. Artifact collection continued and in November of 1985, the first of a number of dugout canoes was discovered by park personnel. It was that discovery, along with the unusually well preserved artifacts, that focused attention on the archaeological potential of Lake Phelps and initiated a cooperative research project with the goal of understanding the secrets of Lake Phelps’ past cultures. The on-going research program is a joint effort by the North Carolina Division of Parks and Recreation, East Carolina University, and the North Carolina Division of Archives and History.

after Justin Sullivan was sentenced to life in prison for planning to commit mass murder in support of the Islamic State, U.S. Attorney Jill Rose of Charlotte confirmed that investigations of other suspected ISIS sympathizers continue in North Carolina.
A domestic-terrorism expert told the Observer this week that the North Carolina probes are among some 1,000 active FBI investigations into ISIS-related threats encompassing all 50 states.
One case involves a 29-year-old Waxhaw man accused of lying to the FBI when he denied he told someone he planned to fly to Syria to fight with ISIS while helping others get there to do the same, according to a bill of indictment unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Charlotte.
According to an Iraqi politician, a Yazidi sex slave was unknowingly fed her murdered and cooked one-year-old son after being starved and tortured by her barbaric ISIS captors.
During a TV interview with Egypt’s Extra News on Monday, Vian Dakhil, the only Yazidi member of the Iraqi parliament, described the devastating report.
“One of the women whom we managed to retrieve from ISIS said that she was held in a cellar for three days without food or water,” she said.
“Afterwards, they brought her a plate of rice and meat. She ate the food because she was very hungry,” Dakhil continued, according to a translation by Middle East Media Research Institute.
“When she was finished they said to her: ‘We cooked your 1-year-old son that we took from you, and this is what you just ate.'”
