Sheboygan Indian Mound Park

The Sheboygan Indian Mound Park, a natural and historic resource, is the sacred burial ground of the Native Americans who lived over 1,000 years ago and built these effigy mounds in deer, Panther, conical, and linear shapes.

[Jara Malchow, 04/23/2015]

Sign near the Open Mound Exhibit says: "The skeleton is composed of replica skeletal material." Real Native American skeletons exhibited in tourist attractions were repatriated long ago by federal decree; this display dates back to 1968.
