One of my favorite things about living in #macon#georgia was being able to visit the #creekindians#ocmulgee#mounds such a majestic place. Always felt like I was connecting to pieces of "myself" while visiting. I could literally spend hours here doing nothing at all.
If you follow my posts, you saw these babies in my meal plan for the week.
Who doesn't love candy bars, right?
I'll see your #Mounds and raise ya something much healthier.
And I don't care what time it is. It's chocolate o'clock somewhere.
Hit me up, and I'll get back to you tonight with the recipe. This girl's got a busy day ahead.
My mom, her last ancestor that lived past 65 Solar Years old, smoked Cannabis Cigars everyday and lived to over 95 years old. My mom lived to 64, mmiw, my grandmother lived to 55, mmiw, my great grandmother lived to 65, mmiw, my great great grandmother was born, before Cannabis (Marijuana) was made illegal in North America by non-Indigenous people! Cannabis being illegal is Systemic Racism!
Effigy mounds, earthworks in the shape of animals and birds, were raised in North America in areas that now correspond to parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, and Ohio. The profile images, seldom more than six feet high, include felines, bears, and deer, and they suffered considerably with the increase in farming settlements in the nineteenth century, when many ancient Native American mounds were plowed under. Fortunately, the extraordinary size and recognizable depictions saved many of the effigy mounds from such a fate. The grandest of the representational mounds is the depiction of an undulating snake, perhaps a stylized rattlesnake, in Adams County, Ohio, known as the Great Serpent Mound.
