The Spiro people, and their Mississippian peers, are nearly forgotten in the pages of North American history, yet they created one of the most exceptional societies in all of the Americas.
The Mississippian culture was a Native American civilization that flourished in what is now the Midwestern, Eastern, and Southeastern United States from approximately 800 CE to 1600 CE, varying regionally. It was known for building large, earthen platform mounds, and often other shaped mounds as well.
This documentary under the guidance and expertise of Dr. Eric Singleton explores the archaeological and historical data connecting the Spiro site to other communities throughout North and Central America, discusses the Spiroan community and religious activities, and highlights the enduring legacy of Native Americans today who are descended from Mississippian cultural groups.
Together at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum we explore an a world that was almost lost to time but thankfully due to its enduring legacy through Native Americans today, archaeology and historians that story is being told so that the entire world can learn about Native American Civilizations in North America.
