It remains to be seen whether this purported glitch will be remedied or whether AB will be passed quietly and without revision against the will of Wisconsin's First Peoples. As the years passed, complex social and religious systems appeared, evolved, and vanished, leaving the basic pattern of life unchanged. Though farming and a road cut off the lower legs of the effigy, the National Park Service reports that mound depicts a shaman or a human transforming into a spirit. Numerous circular humps in the park are easy to spot, and in some places they touch playground areas. How you gonna keep them down on the farm?

    These locations would later become valued as some of the best places to live by settlers. But foot Man Mound is the only effigy of a human that remains. Friends and neighbors have continued his legacy. Many mounds were destroyed by people grading earth surrounding their houses or what would become the foundations of houses.
