Full Answer

The Hopewell traded their goods extensively and made tools and crafts with the materials that they obtained from other areas of North America. Sites of Hopewell settlements can be found in southern Ohio and Indiana. Because it is not known what the Hopewell Indians called themselves, they were named after the landowner who owned the land in which the first Hopewell settlement mound was found in the 1800s.
