Set in stone but not in meaning presentation Feb. 13 in Winslow
The Homolovi Chapter of the Arizona Archaeological Society presents ‘Set in Stone but not in meaning: Southwestern Indian Rock Art, with archaeologist Allen Dart. The talk will take place Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Winslow Chamber of Commerce, 523 W. 2nd.
Ancient Indian pictographs (rock paintings) and petroglyphs (symbols carved or pecked on rocks) are claimed by some to be forms of writing for which meanings are known. However, are such claims supported by archaeology or by Native Americans themselves? Dart will discuss how even the same rock art symbol may be interpreted differently from popular, scientific and modern Native American perspectives.
The presentation is made possible through a grant from Arizona Humanities.
