Yagnohoula Women's Burial Grounds

My fellow writer and friend, Connie Hebert, has a new book coming out. Yagnahoula: Story of an Ancient Women's Burial Ground.  “Yagnahoula” is the story of a 3,000 year old ancient women’s burial grounds at Dauphin Island, AL.

From her website:
According to oral tradition, a tall, light-skinned tribe, called “Nahoula” or ‘people,’ came “from the sea.” They flourished along the coasts of what is now known as Mississippi and Alabama.

The bodies of the holy women among them, literally shone, because they carried a luminescence within their beings, much like the Transfiguration of Christ during biblical times.

Connie is from Lafayette, Louisiana.
