Buie Mound Historic Marker Dedicated by State of NC

Here are photos from this very special day for the dedication ceremony for the historic marker, which was placed by the State of N.C. at Buie Mound. The marker was placed on Highway 710 near the Island Grove and Red Springs Communities. Dating back thousands of years, Buie Mound has long been a sacred place for American Indians. Buie Mound was last excavated in 1974. A panel discussion on "Mound Builders of Robeson County: Archaeology & Ancient Landscapes" was held by the Museum of the Southeast American Indian following the unveiling. Thank you to Nancy Fields Chavis, Harlen Chavis and the staff at the Museum of the Southeast American Indian, the North Carolina Indian Heritage Commission, and the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources for their role in the process to dedicate and mark this important site for Native People across the Carolinas.
