Springfield Audubon Society Program:  Before Icarus: Prehistoric Native American Bird Men, presented by Dr. Michael Wiant, Director, Dickson Mounds Museum. 

Human beings throughout the world have often expressed their awe of nature and in particular, its creatures.

Birds have often been the subject of their admiration and inspiration.

About 1,000 years ago, during a period of rapid urbanization, birds, and especially bird men, are the subject of numerous objects attributed to the Mississippian Culture.

In this presentation, we explore the rise of Mississippian society and contemplate the role of birds and bird men.

Free admission.
