The festival as described by the even't website Moundville.UA.Edu:

Ancient rulers and thousands of their subjects thrived in a city behind huge wooden walls that once surrounded the Moundville site. Their society recognized nobles by birth and praised the feats of great artists, warriors and holy people.
