The significance of these stone etchings on beach rocks is not clearly understood. Since they were carved, water levels have risen enough that one must seek petroglyphs at low tide; they are submerged with mid to high tides. Petroglyphs are found on the south end of the island.
British Captain Vancouver met a well-established First Nations community on Cape Mudge in 1792. For information about local history, flora, fauna and culture, visit Book Bonanza, our island bookstore, or check these links.
