The Crawfish River
When Aztalan flourished
The river provided an important transportation and trade route. The map illustrates the wide area that could be accessed via water routes from Aztalan. Following the Crawfish downstream to its confluence withthe Rock, and then continuing down to the Rock to where it joins the Mississippi in present day Illinois, we have a travel route to the distant Mississippian complex of Cahokia.
The marker is one of a series of markers located on the grounds of Aztalan State Park,
