American Indian Rock Art, Volume 46

This volume contains 12 papers presented at the 2019 Conference in Flagstaff, Arizona, leading off with stories of heroes and healing in Navajo oral literature as portrayed in the rock art of Dinétah. Topics include the grammar of Biographic rock art of the Plains Indians, identification of leaders in Hohokam petroglyphs, technical analyses of pigments in Texas rock paintings, and the use of DStretch to reconstruct painted human figures in Fremont rock art, record newly discovered paintings in Sonora, and reveal the surprising portrayal of a gigantic killer whale in Baja California. The volume is rounded out with studies of rock paintings in Maine, a bison-form petroglyph boulder in Montana, curious grooves and drill holes in a New Mexico rockshelter, and a discussion of different approaches to the interpretation of rock art for the general public.
