Summary Plaquemine, Louisiana, about 10 miles south of Baron Rouge on the banks of the Mississippi River, seems an unassuming southern community for which to designate an entire culture. This work provides an understanding of Plaquemine's relationship to other Native American cultures. It addresses the archaeology of Plaquemine societies
