These pictographs are not all real! The darker ones have been painted over! Disney was filming the movie "Chico the Mysterious Coyote," and they thought that our valley would be a perfect place to film a scene.

The original pictographs did not show up on film so they painted over some of the originals. They also made up pictographs of their own. The lighter ones and the originals were possibly made by the ancestors of the Cahuilla Indians.
