This is great you are having this Tatcan Indian display for all to see what the life of this valley held many 1,000's of years ago. I have been busy recovering Tatcan ancient stones: grinders, scrappers, mortars and pestles, sandstones with pictograph art works, many other ancient stone tools, arrowheads, spearheads,etc.... Its truly exciting exploring for these. I look forward to your exhibit and I hope the children and adults of the area all enjoy!

So deleted my last post about the model of the Casino that our Native Americian friends want to build at Pt. Richmond. Who would have thought 1000 years ago that the legacy would be casinos and tax free cigarettes
