Native American artifacts, including arrowheads, tools and bead work, will be on display Oct. 3 in Lakeville.

The Gopher State Archeological Society will host the Native American Artifact Show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Holiday Inn near Interstate 35W and County Road 70.

The goal of the show is to raise awareness about Minnesota archeology and history and connect collectors, professional archaeologists and the public.

Items on display could include stone arrowheads and knives, stone axes, copper tools and bone tools. More recent items such as Native American art, baskets, bead work and fur trade artifacts also will be shown.

Tom Amble of the Gopher State Archeological Society said a variety of topics, including legal collecting and how to identify fake artifacts, will be discussed.

People who attend the show are encouraged to bring any items they may have at home, passed down through the family or collected, to learn more about them.

The show is open to the public, with a request for donations to defer costs.
