Mississippian Cultural Day

5/11/2013 | Towosahgy State Historic Site | East Prairie, MO

Mississippian Cultural Day showcases the life-ways and products of the Native American Mississippian mound-building culture that existed from around AD 900 until AD 1500 in southeast Missouri. This event takes place at Towosahgy State Historic Site, a Mississippian village site that was just one of many fortified mound sites of the region and is today one of the best preserved examples in Missouri. Visitors will see and take part in many activities that Native Americans perfected, such as arrowhead making (flintknapping), pottery making, archery, making twine with local, native plants, games, and much more. Exhibits and displays of Native American artifacts spanning the centuries will also be on display. This event is for the entire family, with activities for children and adults alike.
