    In the fertile floodplain of the Mississippi River, 10,000 to 20,000 people built and lived at Cahokia from 1050 to 1200 CE. Another 20,000 to 30,000 people occupied the surrounding farmlands and smaller ceremonial precincts in the region. This great center of human activity, one of the first cities in North America, impacted people across the Midwest and Southeast.
