What other structures were found in southeastern Native American villages besides houses?

The houses in southeastern Native American villages were built around a courtyard that was big enough to hold all the village residents and their guests during the Green Corn Ceremony and other important events.

By the courtyard was a council house, where the wise old men and distinguished warriors who ruled the village could meet. Every village also had a great ball court.

There, in summer, men gathered to play a spirited game they called chunky that was similar to the modern sport of lacrosse.
