Paul Mickey Learning Series presented by Bill Iseminger, Asst. Site Manager, Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site

The ancient urban development known as Cahokia, became the largest settlement north of Mexico. Built by people of the Mississippian culture, Cahokia’s influence was widespread throughout eastern North America. The importance of this great site and its major features will be examined, as well as the role that women played in Mississippian culture, beliefs, cosmology and mythology.

Each month, the Paul Mickey Learning Series features a different speaker and topic in the Auditorium at the Illinois State Museum. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
