|Medicine Man's Walk|
A rock cairn erected by medicine men on its summit was still standing when Fort Sill was founded. Here the sick were brought to be healed or disposed of by the Great Spirit, young braves fasted in lonely vigils seeking visions of the supernatural, and warriors presented their shields to the rising sun for power. Legends say that this was also a famous place for Indian suicides. The huge fissure between bluffs no. 2 and 3 was known as the “Medicine Man’s Walk.”
I feel a certain awe when I'm in this place - not only for it natural beauty but for its history as well. When I saw the bird with spread wings overlooking the bluff - it was a symbol of strength and sacredness to me... .
