“We can learn from the past inhabitants of Alabama about how the environment was used, how people interacted with one another and what can be appreciated about the areas around us. It’s important to learn about Moundville and then remind people that Native Americans are still around. They did not disappear. At the Moundville Native American Festival, we celebrate, not just the past, but the present with our many demonstrators and Native American participants, showing a real connection between the past and the present.”
– Dr. Clay Nelson, Director of Moundville Archaeological Park
