Inscription. The Catawba and Kittanning early Native American paths intersected near this location. The Catawba served as a major north south trail while the Kittanning ran east and west. Both offered Native Americans and early Europeans a path- way to a national network of trails throughout the continent and region. These early paths functioned as avenues for trade, communication, and warfare and later served as the foundation for our modern day highway system.
 
Erected 2014 by the IUP Native American Awareness Council and the Office of Social Equity.
