This granite stone is one of the oldest on earth - four billion years old! Before its two-week journey to Washington, D.C., the Dogrib (Tlicho) community of Acasta Lake, in Canada's Northwest Territories, blessed the stone. The Dogrib recount that they were themselves created from stone. It is one of four Cardinal Direction Markers around the museum.
