Timucua in Volusia County 

UPDATE: This lecture will now be via Zoom due to our presenter not being able to present in person. You have two options to attend this lecture…

1. Come to MDC and watch the presentation livestreamed in our Learning Lab.
2. Register for the Zoom presentation via this link and watch from home.

How do you pronounce Timucua? Where did these native people live? What are shell middens?

These and many other questions will be answered about Florida’s earliest residents during the Marine Discovery Center’s May Public Lecture Series entitled, “The Timucua of Volusia County.”

Felipe De Paula, registrar and assistant curator at Ponce DeLeon Inlet Lighthouse, will be the guest presenter on Thursday, May 19, at 6:30 p.m. The event will be livestreamed via Zoom (viewing will be held in MDC’s Learning Lab).

De Paula led a day-long seminar on Florida’s Indigenous People earlier this year at the Lighthouse. He holds a master’s degree in Native American History.

The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association is committed to preserving and sharing the history of the Ponce Inlet Light Station and its surrounding areas

The event is free to the public, but donations to the Marine Discovery Center are always appreciated.

The presentation will be streamed via Zoom and archived later on MDC’s website. You can view it at MDC in our Learning Lab or stream it at home (register online HERE)
