      Dannytwofeathers, I think what you are doing is commendable.

      It’s very easy for modern-day inhabitants of this land to just assume we were the first people to populate it.
      In reality, we took over the land from the indigenous people before us, and did so in violent and cruel ways.

      I want to see if I can generate some scholarly interest in what you are finding.
      Near my home is the Etowah Indian Mounds, the most intact Mississippian Culture site in the Southeast, dating from 1000AD -1550AD.
      The site is overseen by the Georgia Dept of Natural Resources as a State Historic Site. There’s a small museum there on the 50+ acre site of mounds, defensive moats, beautiful river with a fish weir, and excavations of foundations of structures.

      I go there periodically, especially in a cool day when it’s pleasant to wander among the mounds and along the river.

      Next trip there, I’ll see what I can can do/talk to someone in authority and get back to you with whatever their response is.

      These sandstone and soapstones are all popping out of the two creeks here in my village these works are in there frameworks that were building there rock foundations and some you can see in some chimneys looking for these water finds got me excited i been so many of them and some are too heavy and left them on the bank so people can see them no help here all i been told they were all done by plows which is not true i had found many in the creek walls that collapsed and some had lines peeeking out of the enbankment and very few i found buried in the rock bed and some i dug out of the water in the creek about a 2 foot depth i can only figure out that the two areas were a special place were they can tool there stone weapons and carve there stone art and place them in the creek the one other place is about a 20 minute walk from this site it is in the muddy ca pottery reek here in my village of bethania nc i have no clue how old these works are and it is a lost art from the indigneous people i been looking for more of the past and found many finds from long ago pottery shards in the two creeks arrowheads that go back to the second ice age as the archaic period and up to the precolumbian era that includes the neolithic as well i have no help and even contacted collages for my research all i have is a drinking bowl and many many artifacts of these stones acarved by tools which i have found with some of them i can say i have found a morrow as well that layed in the creek i was told not to give up and keep doing what i have doing i am not doing no wrongs and all these finds are all 100 % waterfinds no mounds in my location just near a settlement that was discovered and had already been a archeology site that many artifacts were found no research has ever been done in the two creeks as i have done i do think i could use a helping in my search this creek and the other one i been working in have more secrets to unfold and one secret is that it was a route of the native people and seeing the trail markers tell me that this area was how they got there wzter and tribes coming together

      I am native american and these works of art is a lost art not found on land or on mounds and truth is ihave many videos on my searches in finding these works not one has. not been found but in the creek and banks my native people call me the protector of the stones many have been damaged by years of abuse and neglect smashing them it is sad only i been finding them since some been pulled and i have beautiful finds all posted hopefully one day i can get the recognition i so long deserve going against the unc archeology dept in raleigh they concider these finds as machine made nothing of my people i am gonna prove them all wrong as my collection has fully grown in numbers i have over 100 of them and collected many sizes all i want is to be able to show these finds and be recognized for my search and recovering lost native american stone carved abrading relics i would so love to put some of my finds in a museum and to have the ar heology dept stop telling me i am finding machine made carvings having finger rubbings and markings in the stoe works are remarkable loved them all if i felt they were done by plow i would had left them alone seeing the carved lines in the creek and wall and bank is a dead give away that my ancesterial past had a hand in these stone works of art all unique with different marks and patterns as the one above i think looks like a fish
