Mural (painted by Karen Carr) on display in "The First Alabamians" museum exhibit at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH). While the mural itself is not a primary source, the artist incorporated a number of primary source artifacts housed at ADAH into the scene depicted. This mural shows men playing games in their community's central plaza. The central plaza, a feature common to all Mississippian towns and villages, was where people gathered for recreation and ceremonies. In the background are houses made of daubed mud and sticks.
