Thomas Doty – Storyteller
A Native View
Locations of Indian graveyards vary from place to place, river to river.... At Ti'lomikh on the Rogue, the graveyard is at the lower end of the village ... a short journey downriver to the Land of the Dead. At Coyote's Paw on the Klamath, the graves are upriver, allowing the dead a last walk through the old neighborhood before heading on down the river. In native villages, the graves of the ancestors are always close by.
