MANITOU STONES or 'spirit' stones were once common.  Three to four
basic shapes or styles were prevalent, red rocks and decorative
pigment were preferred and sizes varied.   Hilltops and other significant
places considered important were favored locations for Manitous.  On
the cultural landscape, the stones together with their physical setting
were considered sacred.  Physically, both the hills and Manitou stones
were (are) generally associated with water, i.e. springs, rapids and
water falls, creeks, straits, river bends and drainage divides.  
Association with springs seems to have been most common.  There is
also a definite trail (prehistoric footpath) association, and the places
venerated by the presence of Manitou(s) may have functioned as part of
a broad 'trail-shrine' network, identifying 'place' itself in both a spiritual
and geographic context.  Some Manitous can be dated back many
millennia.  Historically, early French explorers, Jesuit priests and the
later missionaries frequently mentioned them as did Henry Rowe
Schoolcraft during his travels in the upper Midwest in the early 19th
century.  Once the target of destruction by many missionaries, a
surprising number have survived, discovered  where originally erected.   
Lithic Bison effigies and other distinctive shapes including rock outcrop
resembling human and animal profile styles can be considered as part
of the phenomena.
The top of the hill is actually a mound that overlooks the valley. On this
top lies an old cemetery...one of the oldest in the Burlington
Area..dating back to the 1700's.  Where ever you find portals and
vortices, you will find twisted and gnarled trees. It is here where we
experience time loops and alternate time lines.
On top of this ancient mound, thought by the locals to be a small hill, is one of the oldest
cemeteries in the Burlington area, dating back to the 1700's.  This cemetery was never taken care
of and is now being used as a cow pasture with most of the stones either bulldozed down or
cows stepping on them and breaking them up.  Between the mound and the river, is an ancient
battle ground with indentations in the land showing where the fallen warriors were buried.
Another area near the river, has effigy mounds that have been worn down in time, but still there.
A Sacrificial Altar Stone points to the river.

Open cult places were bibilically built on "high places"  - ("...On every
high hill and under every spreading tree" -I Kings 14:23). On the
ridge's summit a CIRCLE OF LARGE STONES was laid, some 20m in
diameter; the empty center of the circle was perhaps reserved for a
sacred tree. Usually on  the circle's eastern side, a large stone
(standing stone) was placed. Statuettes of bulls are sometimes
found in these sacred places, The bull is the symbol of Baal and are
found throughout the Canaanite culture.
