Warriors, Wise Women, and Spirit Beings in Missouri’s Indigenous Rock Art
Warriors, Wise Women, and Spirit Beings in Missouri’s Indigenous Rock Art Online
Several significant rock art sites were created during the Mississippian Period (AD 900 - 1400) in Missouri. This was the period of powerful domination by the Native American kingdom centered at Cahokia Mounds. Motifs found in the rock art generally belong to the tradition designated “Southeastern Ceremonial Complex” (formerly known as the Southern Death Cult). In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Fuller will explain the Cross-in-Circle, Mace, Bi-lobed Arrow, and Hand-and-Eye, and their significance to the peoples who once settled on the very land we now call home.
