Ancient rulers and thousands of their subjects thrived in a city behind huge wooden walls that once surrounded the Moundville site. Their society recognized nobles by birth and praised the feats of great artists, warriors, and holy people.

Each October, descendants of this vibrant culture return, celebrating the South’s rich Indian heritage at the award-winning Moundville Native American Festival.

Performers, artists, craftspeople and tradition bearers entertain and educate visitors of all ages about the rich culture and heritage that makes Southeastern Indians unique.
