Inscription
Emerald Mound's size ins impressive. Scholar James Barnett Jr. called it the region's "crowning mound-building achievement" of the Mississippian era (1,150 to 30 years ago). only a complex society mobilized for a massive multi-generational project could have built such a large ceremonial center. But Emerald Mound is not a relic of the past. In the footsteps of their ancestors, the Natchez people - along with others like the Choctaw and Chickasaw - still gather at this sacred site. In a spirit of fellowship, they welcome others who respectfully journey here.
