On the surface, Moundville doesn't look all that exciting. It is just a field with grassy mounds dotted around it. But if you study its history and use your imagination, you can begin to see it as a community of a peoples who participated in life by growing food, making art objects, and honoring their spiritual beliefs. I wrote this article to describe my own feelings about the energy of the place and share an imaginative journey into the past.

I am a storyteller. I like to wrap inspirational messages inside little vignettes of my life or the lives of others. I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and am now living full time in an RV. Everything I've experienced in my 66 years in this incarnation is fair game to be written about.
