Pawnee Hopewell Mound Builders?

Pawnee Hopewell Mound Builders?

This model of a Hopewell mound builder was done by the Ohio Historical Society using the facial features of a Pawnee Indian.  There are several interesting similarities with the Pawnee and the earlier Hopewell that includes celestial star worship, Sun worship, human sacrifice and earth lodges.  Their proximity to the Oto Sioux is interesting in that we know they were in Ohio at the time of the Hopewell.
