Greetings from the Indian Educators conference where we are inviting members of the Indian Nations in attendance to Carve their Own Rock Art. Here are a few from this morning.
The four shown have great stories that go with each. Penobscot shows the Fiddle Head fern, a spring food source. The Laguna Pueblo rock art board was done by a teenager attending the college fair here at conference.
The MOWA Choctaw shield is from the Mobile Washington Alabama tribe. Last but not least is the Sand Scratch Board carved by a member of the Patungwungya (pumpkin) Clan. The member depicts her husband's Bear clan Honwungya and her pumpkin body graphically, and includes a symbol representing their child.
The stories are fascinating and grounded in the Earth. Watch for more great art that I'll post on our facebook page tomorrow!
