Marker Text:
Whooping and yelling, Blackfeet Indians and white trappers “fought like deamons” in the defile before you in 1823. After the Hudson’s Bay Company trappers burned the Indians out of a strong position by starting a large brush fire, the Blackfeet lost ten warriors in a hot battle. Though he came out the victor, Finnan MacDonald decided that before he would return to trap anywhere around here again, “the Beaver it will have a Gould Skin.”
