Mound Builder

Mound Builder, 9th to 13th Century Archaeologists continue to discover new earthen mounds along the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers. Effigy Mounds National Monument above Marquette, Iowa preserves and educates us about these mysterious prehistoric mounds and the people who built them. Not too far away from the rivers' confluence there is a rock shelter pictograph of legendary people ancestors of our present day Ho-Chunk. Ho-Chunk elder, Chloris Lowe Sr., has drawn a picture of what one of these figures (possibly Red Horn) would look like as a man of that time. This sculpture is based on that drawing.
