The site, being between water Riley Shoals and the Oconee River , would have drawn in Cherokee-like ceremonies for two reasons—the plentiful food around water and the wariness the people had of rivers.
This could have been a site where people would gather and teach the next generation the dangers of the shoals and rivers. Another applicable Cherokee tradition would have been sweat baths. Ceremonial sweat baths was considered a medical cure to diseases. Additionally, by "going into water," Cherokee considered this to be a religious experience in itself.
The Punk Rock Shelter could have easily been a site for sweat baths. The water-worn and red pebbles could have been used to heat up the bath. There would only be a need for a few skins to keep the steam in the shelter.
The large rocks could have been seats for people or had fires built around the bases heating them.

Usually straightforward with clear messages, punk art is often concerned with political issues such as social injustice and economic disparity. The use of images of suffering to shock and create feelings of empathy in the viewer is common. Alternatively, punk artwork may contain images of selfishness, stupidity, or apathy to provoke contempt in the viewer.

Pogo dancing is closely associated with punk rock and is a precursor to moshing. Moshing or slamdancing is a style of dance where participants push or slam into each other, typically during a live music show.
