She Who Watches is one of North America's most famous pictographs.

Renowned by archaeologists around the world. The ancient rock painting in the Columbia River Gorge comes with an interesting story about it's creation. The large-eyed pictograph has a cliffside perch in Washington's Columbia Hills Horsethief Lake.

 

A woman had a house where the village of Nixluidix was later built. She was chief of all who lived in the region. That was a long time before Coyote came up the river and changed things and people were not yet real people.  After a time Coyote in his travels came to this place and asked the inhabitants if they were living well or ill. They sent him to their chief who lived up on the rocks, where she could look down on the village and know what was going on.

Coyote climbed up to the house on the rocks and asked "What kind of living do you give these people? Do you treat them well or are you one of those evil women?" "I am teaching them to live well and build good houses," she said.

"Soon the world will change," said Coyote, "and women will no longer be chiefs." Then he changed her into a rock with the command, "You shall stay here and watch over the people who live here."

All the people know that Tsagaglal sees all things, for whenever they are looking at her those large eyes are watching them.
