Take a break from your day and enjoy a series of virtual presentations over the lunch hour, Thursdays, March 4 – May 6. Hear subject experts discuss various topics related to the National Cowboy Museum Exhibition Spiro and the Art of the Mississippian World.
In this presentation, Elizabeth T. Horton, Ph.D., paleoethnobotanist and archaeologist, explores what is known about the fabric traditions and technologies of weavers at Spiro Mounds as well as the broader Southeastern United States. She discusses the critical role fabrics and fiber plants played in the social lives and economies of the indigenous peoples in the Mississippian Period, and the unique insights perishable material culture provides us in understanding the past.
