Inscription.  The vast valley below was once an overflowing bounty of resources. The rich grasslands and forest flooded often with fresh water, attracting elk and bison to graze. The sacred bison gave life with every part of its body, providing food and shelter as well as tools to people in the village. With each hunt and trade, women and men passed along traditional knowledge to their children.

"On the scraper it shows a dot for every hunt. Each line indicates a hide that was taken per hunt. The elk horn itself has an indentation of where her thumb is. And you think about all the hides that this woman used the scraper on."
Trina Lone Hill, Oglala Sioux
 
Erected by Devils Tower National Monument - National Park Service.
