Southern Nevada Rock Art Sites

CSS Cascading Menu Css3Menu.com

 

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.

On this trip to Cottonwood Valley we were looking for a small petroglyph site that we had heard about, but finding it was not meant to be. No petroglyphs on this trip, but we did find some fossils, a metate / grinding slick, and a several rock rings. So, all in all, not a bad trip.
