Effigy Mounds: An Interview with David Barland-Liles (Zoom)
Wednesday, March 10, 7-8 p.m.
Effigy Mounds National Monument contains more than 200 earth mounds, the highest concentration of mounds in the world, some as old as 2,500 years. In this interview, Barland-Liles will discuss the magic of the effigy mounds, the history of the land, the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act, his building relationships with Native Nations, and the investigation he led into a much-publicized federal crime that happened on site. Barland-Liles, a law enforcement officer for the National Park Service for 25 years, protects indigenous sacred sites and is an expert in enforcing indigenous civil rights and resource protection laws.
