The Mississippian Culture
Description: The moundbuilders—among the first intensive farmers of the continent’s eastern woodlands—thrived because of what they called the Three Sisters–corn, beans, and squash. The population exploded between 800 and 1400 AD; towns and cities crowded the Mississippi and its tributaries. With survival’s burden lightened, arts and crafts blossomed. Interaction among communities became more formal and complex. Political systems and alliances arose, along with elaborate customs and religious rites. The social structure was that of the chiefdom; allied communities were governed by an elite whose positions were inherited or earned by outstanding accomplishments.
