What is OKPAN?

 About Us

The Oklahoma Public Archaeology Network is a non-profit organization that serves as your connection to archaeology in the state of Oklahoma. We aim to bridge together all of Oklahoma’s communities with an interest in the past while promoting education, understanding, and outreach. At our heart, we aspire to promote a respectful exchange between archaeology of all kinds, the interests of the public, and the ongoing histories of Oklahoma’s Native American tribes.

 

What We Do

OKPAN hosts a variety of educational outreach events and initiatives, including Oklahoma Archaeology Month each October and the annual Oklahoma Archaeology Conference. We also offer educational resources, including a “Request and Archaeologist” program for K-12 classrooms as well as our Archaeological Skills Workshop Series for anyone wishing to learn more tools-of-the-trade. OKPAN is continuously developing new events and initiatives, so follow us to learn more about archaeology in Oklahoma!

 

Mission Statement:

“Bridging communities with a passion for the past through public education and outreach, research and teaching partnerships, and professional development opportunities.”
