Abstract:

The mound builders, who left no written history, left engraved shells and copper carved ceremonial pipes from sandstone, limestone, and bauxite, all similar to those still used today by the Poncas. Also tells of the tribe's migration and trek from one section of the country to another, almost covering the entire continent, and their fight for freedom during which the courage, faith, devotion, and leadership of White Eagle never wavered.
