The excavation was undertaken by archeologist Marvin Kivett of the Nebraska State Historical Society and crew.

The Paint Creek site in McPherson County is part of the Little River focus of the Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita), whose people practiced fishing, hunting, gathering, and agriculture.
