Take a break from your day and enjoy a series of virtual presentations over the lunch hour. Hear subject experts discuss various topics related to the National Cowboy Museum Exhibition Spiro and the Art of the Mississippian World.

The Spiro people are nearly forgotten in the pages of North American history, yet they created one of the most exceptional societies in all of the Americas. Eric Singleton, Curator of Ethnology, National Cowboy Museum, will explore the archaeological and historical data connecting the Spiro site to other communities throughout North and Central America. Learn about the Spiroan community, their religious activities and the enduring legacy of Native Americans today who are descended from Mississippian cultural groups.

This is a virtual event. The program is free, but registration is required.
