Published by Patrick McShane
During the 1980s I traveled throughout the Inter-Mountain Northwest locating, documenting, and preserving over 100 Native American Petroglyph, Pictograph, Habitation Sites, Gathering Sites, and anything that would help preserve a history that is fading from memory. Most Native Americans do not know of most of the sites that I have documented. This site consists of a single Basalt Stone covered with Petroglyphs. It is in the back yard of an elderly lady who will preserve it as long as she is alive. I was the first person that she allowed complete access to the stone. I spent a week with the stone and as a part of the agreement I was allowed to restore it to a state as close to the original as possible. She vowed that no one would be allowed to touch it ever again. She allows very limited access to the stone and I fear that when she dies it will be lost forever as I believe no one cares about it. It records a Gathering and agreement between waring tribes over land. Like all agreements this one was destined to be broken.
