It’s time to put this advanced civilization in its rightful place, equally as integral to our nation’s history as the arrival of Columbus and the European explorers. There are more ancient Indian sites in the U.S. Shoot a video about one near you and upload it here. You can help teach others about North America’s amazing past!
