SPIRO—The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center will hold Autumnal Equinox Walks on Sept. 22.
As the end of summer nears and crops are ready for harvest, the time of the year arrives for the most important of ceremonies for the eastern American Indians, the Busk or Green Corn Ceremony. The Green Corn Ceremony was a harvest and renewal ceremony that took place around the autumnal equinox in the Spiro area.
There will be three walks beginning at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., led by archaeologist and Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center Manager Dennis Peterson. Each walk will take about two hours and require a mile of easy walking.
