Long Description:
The Indians who lived here in prehistoric and early historic times were very artistic. They painted and tattooed on their bodies, wove and painted designs on mats and clothing, and decorated many of their tools and weapons. Indians used natural pigments made from mineral substances such as red and yellow ocher, and from berries and plants including Bloodroot. Few of the ancient designs on wood, bark and skin survived.

A number of petroglyphs - also known as rock carvings - have been found showing stick figures. The meaning of these figures has been lost and one can only guess at their original significance. Picture drawn, painted or carved on other substances, such as bark or skin are known known as pictographs.
