I guess it's time I move from watching this community to being a member in it. If nothing else, it means if I start posting comments, maybe people will recognize me.

+ Name :
  Therese Arkenberg

+ Age : I'll be a legal adult in a week.

+ Country : USA (state: Wisconsin).

+ Main Interests (Community-Related): Missisippian culture, history of Great Lakes area, Aztec and Maya mythology

+ Other Interests : I'm a science fiction/fantasy writer, so some of my interest in Native American cultures is because they make good story ideas, I suppose. I'm especially interested in Pre-Columbian history of both the Americas and Europe.

+ Visited Any Ancient American Sites? Aztlan, in Wisconsin, the northernmost Mississippian site.

+ Places You'd Like to Visit : About anywhere in the Yucatan or the Amazon; as well as Cahokia and as many archeological and informational sites around the Great Lakes as possible.

+ How Did You Come Across the Community? It was a while ago; I think I started watching it because we share interests.

Welcome, person.

I've managed to make my way to Cahokia. Its oddly impressive, yet in the middle of a terrible neighborhood.

Basically share much of the same interests, save I am pursuing some of them professionally. Things get posted occassionally. Feel free to generate some discussion.

Speaking of...ever read Charles C. Mann's 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus?

Re: 1491

Its an excellent review of the latest thinking, theories, discoveries about the role of pre-Columbian inhabitants in the Americas. Its a good text to introduce the subject with.
