Yagnahoula is the story of a 2,000-3000 year-old ancient women's burial grounds.
According to oral tradition, a tall, light-skinned tribe, known as the Nahoula came from the sea. They flourished along the Gulf coasts of Mississippi and Alabama known as the Mississippi Sound.
The bodies of these holy women literally shone, much like Christ's Transfiguration during biblical times. Since their word for shining was Yag and the word for people was Nahoula, the holy women were known as Yag-nahoula, meaning Shining Ones.
According to oral tradition, it is these holy women who are interred at this prehistoric burial site recognized by the U.S. government.
