Homeschool Field Trips: Implications for the defacing of Indian petroglyphs

Many homeschool families include awareness of historical artifacts and the human impact on the environment as part of their curriculum.  Since many of the historical sites are being removed or vandalized, there are fewer places of pristine archiving of relics from the past.  Homeschool families and support groups are invited to attend a panel discussion by Deer Valley Rock Art Center which will examine what is happening to deface the remaining rock art venues, and what can be done to preserve them.

FREE Panel Discussion: “Painted, Scratched, Defaced: Rock Art Vandalism in Arizona”

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center kicks off the spring with an important panel discussion.  Vandalism to rock art sites in Arizona is a distressing and persistent reality. To promote public awareness and debate about the preservation of rock art sites, a panel of archaeologists will discuss a variety of topics, including recent vandalism at Keyhole Sink, debates over rock art conservation models, Native American concerns about the destruction of cultural heritage, as well as stewardship of archaeological sites.
Panelists include:
Neil Weintraub, Kaibab National Forest Archaeologist
Peter Pilles, Coconino National Forest Archaeologist
Lyle Balenquah, Acting Curator of Anthropology, Museum of Northern Arizona
Todd Bostwick, retired City of Phoenix Archaeologist
