Abstract

The story of Riplackish in Ether 10 places the building of elaborate thrones in America very early in pre-Columbian times. Archaeology confirms that the earliest culture in Mesoamerica was building elaborate, stone thrones in the second millennium BC. Learning about these thrones and what they symbolized provides insight into the story of Riplakish.
