In Iowa, the Ioway and Oto Indians bridge the gap between the historically known Indians inhabiting Iowa, and the long cultural continuum delineated by archaeological research on prehistoric sites. Few historic Ioway sites are known today, particularly in southeast Iowa. The recently discovered Iowaville site may contribute substantially to our knowledge of scantily documented Ioway Indians, and may shed light on relationships with the prehistoric Oneota culture.
