CANALOU - A one time Indian village believed to have been the home of the Mississippi Indians, with its history traced back to shortly before the coming of the Europeans to this country, was unearthed during the past week on the Paul McCullock farm. The University of Missouri archeology research department, with local help, has been uncovering former home sites, burial grounds, storage pits and fireplaces. The Indians were horticulturalists it is believed because of the many items discovered, such as charred corn, acorn seeds and ragweed seed. The remains of deer bodies and other animals, as well as human skeletons, were also found. This is the fourth large Indian site that has been found in Southeast Missouri.
