Lecture – Indigenous Rock Imagery of the Sonoran Desert at Mustang Library

Location: Mustang Library – 10101 N 90th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85258

Presenter: Aaron Wright, Archeology Southwest

Petroglyphs and pictographs are integral to the cultural traditions of Indigenous communities the world over, and especially so in the Sonoran Desert where they abound on the countless chocolate- and charcoal-colored rocks. It’s natural to ask what they may mean, but perhaps a more appropriate question is what do they do? These images move us in remarkable ways, and therein lies some of their significance. This talk will review the diversity of rock imagery across the Sonoran Desert with one eye on common threads and the other on unique regional qualities.
