Have any of you ever heard of Cahokia? It seems to be a forgotten city when it comes to teaching History. They are famous for the large mounds they built .

I have heard of it before... the most advanced Native American Civilization right? I never learned about it in High School, but my college prof spent about 2 minutes on the subject :-/

We used to take field trips to the Cahokia Mounds every couple years (this was back in grade school) It's discussed in school in Missouri and Illinois, because of the close proximity (I am in St. Louis).
