Mapping the Indigenous Futures of Post-Removal Mounds

Chadwick Allen will overview his new book, Earthworks Rising: Mound Building in Native Literature and Arts and discuss examples of how contemporary Indigenous communities are reengaging—and reimagining—ancient traditions of building large-scale earthworks. How do these post-Removal mounds make meaning for tribal citizens and broader audiences, especially when they are part of state-of-the-art public venues for Indigenous self-representation, such as the tribally specific Chickasaw Cultural Center (opened in 2010 near Sulphur, Oklahoma) and the multi-tribal First Americans Museum (opened in 2021 outside Oklahoma City).
