Birds in Ancestral Pueblo Rock Art and Culture
Sally Cole
The presentation focuses on birds in petroglyphs and paintings of the Ancestral Pueblo tradition in the Four Corners region between approximately 1000-400 BC to AD 1700. The imagery occurs on open cliffs and alcove walls and on plastered surfaces within rooms and kivas. Although symbolism and activities surrounding prehistoric depictions and use of birds and feathers are obscured by time, archaeology and ethnohistorical accounts offer insights into the iconography and rich and complex relationships between Puebloan peoples and birds over time.
