(LSU Campus Mounds)

The two large earthen mounds,
traditionally known as the
Indian Mounds, are among the

oldest man-made edifices in
North America.

These mounds were constructed
approximately 6,000 years ago by
the Native Peoples and are older than
the Egyptian pyramids. A hunting-
gathering society constructed these
sacred structures and met here
periodically for ceremonial activities
and secular events.
Please help us preserve these ancient structures by
refraining from gathering on or sliding down the mounds.
