What is a Piasa? (PIE-Ah-Saw)

"The Piasa bird is said to have flown over the ''Great Father of Waters' thousands of moons before the white man came, when magolonyn and mastodon were still living."

 The Piasa Bird is a legendary mythical beast native to our area of the Mississippi River. Native Americans named the great beast 'Piasa', which in native language meant "the bird that devours men" or "bird of the evil spirit". Lore described the bird as part bird, reptile, mammal, and fish. The colors used in early paintings symbolize war and vengeance (red), death and despair (black), and hope and triumph over death (green). The great painted image of the Piasa on the Alton Bluffs has been moved and repainted many times over the years. It is currently farther west than the original location on the Great River Road between Alton and Grafton, IL. If you have never been, it is worth the trip- and a very scenic and memorable drive along the river!

"The Piasa bird is said to have flown over the ''Great Father of Waters' thousands of moons before the white man came, when magolonyn and mastodon were still living."

 The Piasa Bird is a legendary mythical beast native to our area of the Mississippi River. Native Americans named the great beast 'Piasa', which in native language meant "the bird that devours men" or "bird of the evil spirit". Lore described the bird as part bird, reptile, mammal, and fish. The colors used in early paintings symbolize war and vengeance (red), death and despair (black), and hope and triumph over death (green). The great painted image of the Piasa on the Alton Bluffs has been moved and repainted many times over the years. It is currently farther west than the original location on the Great River Road between Alton and Grafton, IL. If you have never been, it is worth the trip- and a very scenic and memorable drive along the river!
