Many of these stone etchings were made hundreds of years
ago on beach rocks; their significance is not clearly understood.
Since then, water levels have risen enough that one must seek
petroglyphs at low tide; the rocks are submerged with mid to
high tides. Several are scattered on the beach at the south end
of the island. Some face west, near Fransisco Point, and others
face Campbell River, below Tsa Kwa Luten Resort.
This distinctive building, built with rounded lines, is located in
Cape Mudge Village. It houses original artifacts in a Potlatch
Collection, with excellent interpretive information. Hear
traditional songs, then make a petroglyph rubbing in the lower
gallery. At the nearby House of Eagles, visit local artists at
work in the summer months. The Gift Gallery presents a good
selection of original artwork, prints, carvings, as well as books
and cards, jewelry and clothing. nuyumbalees.com
