Hoxie Farm is an intensively occupied Upper Mississippian site situated near the southern end of Lake Michigan. ITARP investigations at this site for an IDOT interstate expansion project earlier this decade encountered extensive evidence for late Fisher and Huber phase occupation including burial features and human remains in nonburial contexts. In this paper we will present summary information on the mortuary practices evident in our dataset, as well as data from previous site excavations by others, focusing on burial feature characteristics, cultural component association, stable isotope analyses, and the interred population.
