“I am really excited to go virtual this year because I believe that we will be able to reach more people and encourage them to explore Southeastern Native American heritage and culture,” said Lindsey Gordon, Education Outreach Coordinator at Moundville Archaeological Park. “Even though we are going on the web, we will still have the same great performances and demonstrations as well as some new components, such as park-focused lectures and video series.”

Keep your eye on Moundville Archaeological Park’s website and social media accounts for upcoming details on this year’s Festival! Livestreams and pre-recorded videos will be viewable on Moundville Archaeological Park’s Facebook page and the University of Alabama Museums’ YouTube channel.
