The Indian Arrow Tree

The Indian arrow Tree is located approximately ½ mile uphill from the
historic lumber town of Korbel on the east edge of Maple Creek Road.  It is marked by a sign on the old redwood snag’s trunk.

It is said this tree commemorated a peace treaty and marked the territorial boundary between the pre-contact Wiyot living in the Blue Lake area and their Athabascan neighbors to the east, the Whilkut and the Chilula (“Redwood Creek Indians”).  When passing this place, a prayer was said and an offering made of a sharpened stick or sprig of redwood.  Sometime before 1913, the accumulated heap of these was maliciously set on fire, spreading up the tree as far as the arrow sticks went.
