Natchez Trace Indian History

Mangum Mound
Natchez Trace

Mangum Mound is located on the Natchez Trace Parkway at milepost 45.7.


Mangum Mound - Excavation of this site tells us much about the people of the late prehistoric period. The Plaquemine culture included the ancestors of the modern tribes of Mississippi and Louisiana. It was a society with elaborate agriculturally oriented religious ceremonies. From the burials on this mound we have learned there as a high infant mortality and upon the death of a chief, a brutal ritual was enacted in which his retainers were slain and buried with him.
