US Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks earn UNESCO world heritage status: A triumph for heritage and history

Ohioans have a lot to celebrate as the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks achieve UNESCO World Heritage status. These remarkable earthen mounds, spanning from Fort Ancient in the west to Chillicothe and Newark, are now recognized as global treasures. Constructed meticulously over several centuries, they reveal the incredible knowledge and expertise of the Hopewell people.

These earthworks not only represent human creative genius but also serve as a testament to Indigenous American heritage, science, culture, and astronomy. This designation not only safeguards these sacred sites but also reshapes the narrative about Ohio’s Native American history, dispelling past misconceptions.
