The Spiro Mounds Earthwork In Oklahoma That Still Baffles Archaeologists To This Day
If you’ve studied much Oklahoma history then you’ve probably heard about the Spiro people that were once the most powerful group to ever exist in North America. They are lesser known than the Aztecs and Incas but they left behind artifacts and mysteries that are still undiscovered to this day. The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center is dedicated to educating people about this mysterious group and preserving and unearthing artifacts left behind. The site is home to 12 earthen mounds, remains of a village, interpretive exhibits, and more. It’s one of the most important American Indian sites in the country and a very interesting attraction to visit. The Spiro culture still baffles archaeologists and historians today but the artifacts they left behind show us a glimpse into their world and it’s quite impressive. Keep scrolling to learn more.
Another educational (and fun) place to visit is Liichokoshkomo, located at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. This authentic look at Native American life is a great way to have fun with family and friends, while also learning about their treasured past.
