Join the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary and Native American Naturalist, David Morris on October 4, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Pueblo Grande Museum for his program, Rock Art of the Southwest which will examine the early cultures of the southwest and the rock art they left behind.
Cultures such as the Hohokam, Patayan and the Ancestral Pueblos will be compared and theories about their development and disappearance will be explored. Attendees can view some examples of the rock art (pictographs and petroglyphs) of these cultures and discuss possible interpretations of these ancient designs.
