November is Native American Heritage Month, and in honor of their contribution to our nation’s diversified history, Shiloh Battlefield will host two interpretive hikes of the Shiloh Indian Mounds. The hikes will take place on Saturday, November 13, and Saturday, November 27, at 10:00 am.

Within its boundaries, Shiloh National Military Park contains one of the most important archaeological sites in the Lower Tennessee Valley, the Shiloh Indian Mounds National Historic Landmark. The program will focus on the past archaeological work at the site as well as several aspects of daily life at the Shiloh Mound village in 1250 AD. The interpretive hike will explore Native American life, such as how the people defended themselves, what food items they hunted and gathered, and why they built the mounds.

Anyone interested in participating in one of the two-hour hikes is invited to register in advance by calling the park at 731-689-5696. Participants will meet the ranger at the Indian Mound Shelter at 10:00 am on the scheduled day. The terrain will be moderate and hikers should bring water and wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather. Rain or severe weather will cancel the programs.
