Earth Oven Demonstration

May 28, 2022

Poverty Point World Heritage Site will host a prehistoric earth oven cooking demonstration on Saturday, May 28, at 11 a.m. A ranger will show how Native Americans who built Poverty Point cooked their food 3,500 years ago using shaped lumps of fired earth that archaeologists call Poverty Point Objects. We welcome visitors to come and learn about this ancient, native way of cooking food.
