Judaculla Rock


Author(s):
Abstract:
The author attempts to explain Judaculla Rock and its petroglyphs. The rock is believed to be of Cherokee origin and is located in Cullowhee, Jackson County, North Carolina. An explanation of the mythical Cherokee character Judaculla or Tsul-ka-lu is first described. The author then follows by explaining that he believes the rock is a picture-map of the battle of Tal-i-wa fought in 1755. Evidence for his theory is provided.
