Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa was integrated into the National Park Service in 1949. The park of 2,526 acres in size protects over 200 burial mounds which represent unique earthworks of ancient American Indians. The mounds impress through the variety of forms: more than 30 types of animals, including bears, or bird-shaped “effigy”- from where the park takes its name. The site is believed to be created one to two thousand years ago, with the purpose of remembering the dead, but also for ceremonial or story-telling events.
Nowadays, the park is considered a sacred place by members of present tribes, who believe their ancestors once lived there. Besides from immortalizing this unique connection with the ancient world and keeping alive their legacy, the park presents beautiful sights of the Mississippi River Valley and is home to many animals and plants.
