Battleground, Indiana Hunter Constellation Mound Group

Battleground, Indiana Hunter Constellation Mound Group


The only mound group that was constructed to represent a constellation is located in Battleground, Indiana in the northwest section of Indiana. Mounds in this area have been attributed to the Oneoto Sioux.


The largest mound in the effigy group represented the bright star Rigel

These mounds are the line that represent Betelgeuse slightly visible on the left and Bellatrix at the far end.
