186. Stephanie Perrault. Poverty Point. Pt 2.

186. Part 2 of our interview with Stephanie Perrault about "Poverty Point." Poverty Point is a prehistoric earthworks of the Poverty Point culture, now a U.S. National Monument and World Heritage Site located in the Southern United States. It is situated on the edge of Ma├žon Ridge, near the village of Epps in West Carroll Parish in northeastern Louisiana. Poverty Point comprises several earthworks and mounds built between 1650 and 700 BC, during the Archaic period in the Americas by a group of Native Americans of the Poverty Point culture. The culture extended 100 miles (160 km) across the Mississippi Delta. We talk to Stephanie about the original culture at the site, as well as about their current programs.
