ANCIENT ROCK ART
SYMBOLS PART I
Presented By Boma Johnson, Archaeologist
Join us for our further exploration of fascinating Native American Rock Art, with emphasis this time on how rock art- petroglyphs (pecked symbols) and pictographs (painted symbols) were used as a form of written communication, for specific purposes: stories, history, clan migrations, astronomical calendars and more! We'll start with a new overview : The What, Why& Who of Rock Art". Then we'll move on to the basic symbols; Coyote, Deer, Shamans, Tlaloc The Rain God, Big Cats, The Great Serpent, Warriors & Shields, and Clan Symbols. Learn how to recognize these symbols in their infinite variety, what these symbols mean to the people who made them, and who those people were...and are today! We'll end with some intriguing mysteries: The Night Sky & an overview of Anasazi archaeoastronomy, plus we will offer the final answer to the mystery of the Waterglyphs. The class will be presented with a wide variety of media formats, from PowerPoint lectures, to videos and DVDs, with original Native flute music and digital paintings. Our classes are FUN as well as informative. Previous classes are NOT a prerequisite. If you have taken our classes before- donít worry- you wonít be bored! Classes are inter-related but NEVER exactly the same. We don't want to be bored, either!
