Added on Sept 12th to Nevada Rock Art Sites "G - L"

The Southwest, including Southern Nevada, has a significant amount of Native American Petroglyph / Rock Art Sites. Our web site will concentrate on the rock art of Southern Nevada which extends back over 1500 years, and was typically created by either the Paiute, Shoshone, Chemehuevi, or the Anasazi people.

 

Preservation through Education

 

We believe that rock art on public lands does not - and should not - belong to just a few select people or groups.  However, due to the fragile nature of many rock art sites, it is not realistic to have a large number of people visiting most of them. What we are attempting to do with our website is to provide visual access where those with the interest or the curiosity can go to see and appreciate a small piece of Native American history. Our beliefs are that by educating people to the historical significance of the rock art, people will be more inclined to respect, and preserve, the sites for the enjoyment of everyone for a long, long time.

If you are new to rock art, or just curious, please take the time to visit our latest website “Finding Rock Art - Hints On How We Do It”. It is a starting place for the novice, but there are some things that even the old timers might find interesting.

If you know of "any rock art sites or isolated petroglyphs and you are willing to share that information, please contact me by clicking on our contact page. I am very interested in "new to me" sites in the greater Clark County (Las Vegas) area of Nevada. I am especially interested in the Gold Butte region (eastern Clark County), the adjoining rivers, and Lake Mead.
