Indian Pictorgraphs including rock piles

Tim MacSweeney found this page of pictographs on page 78 of a book by Garrick Mallery. In the middle of the fifth row, just below the center, is a picture of a rock pile with the words "Many cashe [cache] heap".

We need to keep in mind that rock pile ceremonialism was probably not universal within an Indian group. At least with the Aquinna (Martha's Vineyard Wampunoag) only certain families would have knowledge of certain aspects of ceremony and of the sacred.
