Trade, art, and ideas linked Emerald Mound, both physically and spiritually, with mound sites throughout the eastern half of North America.Mound building, as a practice, was widespread. Over thousands of years, the native peoples who built mounds in North America also maintained networks of trade along trails like the Natchez Trace. Trade in raw materials and particularly in fine ceremonial objects was brisk. Artists bartered for items made from shell, copper, feathers, and clay. The symbolic images worn by the elite - winged serpents, panthers, and birds, for example - showed up at sites hundreds of miles apart.
