Women's contributions?[edit]

Women were half of the Mississippian culture and later historic tribes, yet they barely appear. Traditionally, they would have made many of the textiles and pottery which contributed to the symbolism and development of the culture. In recent decades, researchers have understood that women's cooking and cultivation of distinct varieties of maize, squash and beans contributed strongly to the development of civilizations. Undoubtedly they had women only rituals in both the Mississippian and historic periods. The article needs to include their contributions.Parkwells (talk) 14:35, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Claremore Mound[edit]

Does anyone know if Claremore Mound, located in Rogers County, OK, has been identified as being part of the Caddoan Mississippian culture? I have been trying to find information online, but most seems devoted to its history as a battle site between Cherokee and Osage in 1817. It certainly looks like a classic earthen platform mound. Has it been excavated? Thanks. Parkwells (talk) 22:51, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

  • I took a quick look around and found practically nothing about the pre-historic archaeology of Claremont Mound. The Wikipedia article isn't referenced -- so I don't know whether it is accurate or not. (Maybe the article should be tagged for lack of references?) There are archaeological sites in adjacent Oklahoma Counties that are of Caddoan-Mississippian origin, so it makes sense that the Claremore Mound is of the same culture and vintage.
  • However, it seems odd that if Claremore is a legitimate and significant Caddoan-Mississippian site there isn't any documentation to speak of. Smallchief (talk) 23:47, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
