Iroquois Burial Mound With Spirit Stones in Noble County, Indiana

 Iroquois Burial Mound with Spirit Stones in Noble County, Indiana

Close up of the Spirit Stone with a face made by natural sculpturing. 

On the west side of a small Iroquois burial mound in Noble County, Indiana was a flat stone pushed deep into the ground.  I was able to free the stone, that revealed what appeared to be a face. These faces were used as Spirit Stones by the ancient Iroquois. The Spirit Stone was used to guard the dead buried in the mound.

The burial mound adjacent to the Spirit Stone has a natural spring next on the west left side.

This carved slate stone was also found on the property, north of the burial mound, on an elevation where a circular earthwork was once situated.
