Devil's Tower Place of Power
Liz Klobusicky
According to Indian legend, the first ascent of Devils Tower was made
when seven Indian maidens jumped onto a low rock to escape the grizzly bear
and prayed. The rock heard them and began to push itself up out of the ground,
raising the children upward in the sky and left them there as seven little stars
the Pleiades. The bear clawed at the rock trying to reach its prey.
