NATIVE AMERICAN ROCK ART STORIES, PART III:
By Boma Johnson, Archaeologist
Join us for further explorations of the world of ancient Native American Rock Art. We will start out with the latest information on Native American migrations, and look for ways to trace the trails through rock art. Emphasis will be on important legends and stories, and how they are recorded in rock art, so that they will be remembered. Come learn the symbols for the most important ones: the stories of Creation and the Creator, Emergence, Migration and The Great Journey. It's time to learn how to put together the knowledge of symbols with the background of Native American culture, for better understanding of how the Ancient Ones lived and thought. See some great rock art story panels, and learn who made them.....and why. Explore the expression of creation myths from different Native American societies. Learn how ceremonies, music and dance help to tell the stories!
The class will be presented with a wide variety of BRAND NEW media, from PowerPoint lectures, to videos and DVDs. These rock art classes are FUN as well as informative. Our previous classes are NOT a prerequisite- you do not have to have taken Symbols Part I to understand what is going on. If you have taken one of our classes before- donít worry- you wonít be bored! Each class is inter-related to the others, but different. We just keep going and going and going, like Ever-Ready Bunnies!
