How to use "Mound" in context?

The word "mound" comes from the Algonquian word "mouand" meaning "to rise." They are typically circular, cone- or pyramid-shaped hills of earth and gravel that are more than 10 feet (3 meters) in height and whose tops are rounded or conical. The majority of mounds were constructed in the late Pre-Columbian era, though some dating back to the Archaic and early Woodland periods have been found. The great majority of mounds were built by the Mississippian culture, which flourished from about 1000 to 1400 CE.
