Native American Heritage

Although there were Native Americans in Kentucky in prehistoric times, when explorers and settlers began entering Kentucky in the mid-1700s, there were no permanent Kentucky Indian tribes or Native American settlements in the region. Instead of serving as a home for Kentucky Indian tribes, the country was used as common hunting grounds by Shawnees  from the north and Cherokees from the south. The Iroquois  also claimed their possession until 1768, though did not occupy them.

Today, several sites preserve the heritage of Native Americans in Kentucky, a vital part of the long history of Kentucky
