More Than Diaspora: The Implications of Cahokian Precincts, Shrines, and Outliers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Excavations at Cahokia’s ESTL precinct and beyond in the last 10 years have produced clear indications of novel 11th and 12th century AD politico-religious practices and a rigid architectural module. The scale of anthropogenic landscape modifications there and at shrine complexes to the east are now clear, as is the infiltration of domestic zones by public institutions. Cahokians were actively centering themselves vis-à-vis both the regional landscape and distant places/powers as far south as Carson and Lake Providence. Surely there was diaspora, including early expatriate settlements and later émigrés. However, Cahokia’s historical impacts involved more than diaspora.
