This Petroglyph at the Milk River, near Coutts, southern Alberta, Canada, may depict a divination ceremony.  The text reads:  Mal Freya gad (using g for k) = "Freya gives utterance:  the spiked staff."  The priestess of Freya served as her medium and, when conducting divination, wore a special headdress and carried a special staff (Fell 1982).
