The Glacial Kame and Red Ocher cultures are names for the burial practices of certain Late Archaic groups. The Glacial Kame "culture" is found in northwestern Ohio and parts of neighboring states as well as southern Ontario. These people sought out large, natural mounds of earth, called "glacial kames" because they formed along glaciers, in which to bury their honored dead. Glacial Kame burials are known for a particular style of shell gorget, or ornament, shaped like the sole of a sandal.
