University Press of Florida

This chapter explores Mississippian foodways at Parchman Place through a functional analysis of ceramics and a consideration of the foodways of the Native American people of the southeastern United States—the descendants of Mississippian communities. Correspondence Analysis (CA) of the results indicate the manufacture and use of two distinct pottery assemblages: (1) a baseline domestic assemblage used for everyday cooking, serving, and storage; and (2) a special-use serving assemblage used for community-wide eating events or feasts. These community feasting events played an important role in the founding and ceremonial maintenance of the Mississippian community at Parchman Place.

Keywords:   Mississippian foodways, Functional analysis of ceramics, Correspondence Analysis, Feasting, Mississippian community
