A Gendered use of Space: Description and Spatial Analysis of Material Culture Recovered from the Chief Richardville House (12AL1887).

Author(s): Elizabeth K. Spott

Summary

The 1827 Greek Revival house of John B. Richardville (aka Jean Baptiste de Richardville), Civil Chief of the Miami tribe (1816-1841), is the oldest extant Native American treaty house in the Midwest. Richardville lived in the grand house until his death, while his wife Natoequa reportedly lived in a nearby wikiup. Richardville’s daughter, LaBlonde, lived in the house after his death. The spatial distribution of material culture recovered from excavations in 1992 and 1995 is considered within the context of a gendered use of space, in order to determine if gender distinctions in material culture are reflected in the early and middle 19th century occupations at the Richardville house.
