Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site is another great opportunity to learn about the history of Georgia. As the name suggests, this state park is dedicated to preserving the culture of the Etowah tribe of Native Americans. Visitors will be able to get an exclusive peek into the Etowah society. In addition to the six mounds that give Etowah its name, visitors will also get a chance to explore the Etowah plaza and other village sites to understand how this tribe lived from day-to-day. Etowah also has a museum filled with artifacts that were important to the political and religious workings of the tribe!
Visitors will also get a chance to explore the natural wonder of the Etowah Historic Site as well! Following the nature trail that winds along the Etowah River leads to a v-shaped fish trap that the Etowah tribe used to catch fish for the village. The nature trail is also a good opportunity to observe the various plants that the Etowah used for food and medicine. If you think you have a sharp eye, then Etowah’s Day of Discovery and Scavenger Hunt Challenge would be a great way to test your outdoor detective skills! Participants will traverse the historic site looking for clues while gaining valuable insight to the culture of the Etowah Native American tribe!
