The Friends of the Great Circle Alliance (GCA) is a group of individuals, organizations, and businesses joining with GCA as allies, reanimating indigenous history, art and culture. Our purpose is to bring together Native and non-Native people – artists, scholars, archeologists, and local communities – to generate more in-depth appreciation and engagement with the Hopewell earthworks, connecting ancestral voices with contemporary people. The Great Circle Alliance is an independent nonprofit organization. We operate an informal alliance with Native Americans connected to the sites, the OSU Newark Earthworks Center, the Ohio History Connection, and Denison University. The Friends of the Great Circle Alliance will:
  • Further the educational and interpretive activities at the Newark Earthworks
  • Provide volunteer support for site programs, projects, and special events
  • Support the GCA Artist in Residence program
  • Provide input in long-range program planning
