Marker Name: Shopping at Davis Lake Nature’s Market
Marker Text: When the first non-native explorers came here they found a lake that was full of fish and surrounded by countless varieties of plants and animals. They had stumbled upon an “open-air market” where the locals came to stock up on plants and animals for food, medicine, and containers.
Readily available volcanic rock and obsidian provided toolstone for hunting, gathering, and processing foods.
This sustainable ecosystem had been used and managed for centuries by people we now know as Klamath, Modoc, Paiute, Tygh, Tenino, Molalla, Upper Umpqua, and Warm Springs Indians.
