Paradise Valley

Robert Cartier, an archaeologist with Archaeological Resource Management in San Jose, Ca., has located a figure in the upper Paradise Valley in Southwestern Montana that is around 1,287 ft. long with an arm span of about 330 ft. Cartier said the figure was possibly made by the Avonlea Indian Culture, which migrated from Canada to the southwest between 200 and 750 A.D. The figure, he contends, is shaped like the current Navajo Yei figures, or Navajo gods and goddesses.
