Sacred Sites: Panther Spirit Mound Project

The Panther Spirit Effigy Mound Project is a project that is facilitated by Chloris Lowe - Lowe Consulting, to restore and preserve this sacred prehistoric burial and spiritual site of the Ho-Chunk Nation. After re-discovering the mound in the early fall of 2004, Panther Spirit Mound - Mauston WisconsinChloris approached the Administrator of the Olson Middle School (Mr. Tom Reisenauer) in Mauston, Wisconsin about a project to preserve this sacred site which is located within the City limits of Mauston. He proposed to involve several entities with which he has professional relationships to bring this educational component to the middle school. The School Administrator immediately moved forward with the project concept and later a grant in the amount of $10,000 from the History Channel was awarded to this project.

Lowe Consulting directly facilitated the following organizations involvement with the project: The Wisconsin State Historical Society, The Mississippi Valley Archaeological Center - UW La Crosse, The Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources – La Crosse Office. The project is currently ongoing and is being considered for involvement in a developing project on mound ground cover until 2012.

The site is being Nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
