Description

These scored rocks, resplendent with whales, sailing ships, hunters, and priests were carved by ancestors of the Makah tribe. It's surmised that the Makah tribe used rocks and bone to create these beautiful features.

These extraordinary petroglyphs are culturally significant and very meaningful to the Makah tribe. Do NOT touch or manipulate these rocks in any way.
