Journey back to a thousand year old indian village. The Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village represents the remains of a fortified village of native american gardeners and hunters that lived 900 to 1000 years ago along Firesteel Creek, now the shores of Lake Mitchell. The village had about 600 people living in about 70 earthlodges. This site is still being excavated and studied by the staff and students of Augustana College in Souix Falls,SD. They think the village was occupied for about 50 years. After the resources of timber and game animals were gone, they believe they moved further west, probaly to the Missouri river.
