In Oregon’s Western Cascades, Pilot
Rock rises thousands of feet above
the Rogue and Shasta Valleys. The
area’s original Native American
inhabitants, the Takelma, called
it Tan-ts'at-seniphtha, or Stone
Standing Up. In its shadow, the
Takelma (“those along the river”)
built villages of semi-subterranean
homes. Net fishing, hunting and
foraging allowed the Takelma to live
harmoniously along the Rogue River.
Arrows represent salmon swimming
into nets, and large baskets overflow
with abundant acorns and camas.
