Rock Art of the Mimbres Mogollon Culture


Travel to the ancient Mimbres culture homeland in southwestern New Mexico between Hatch and Deming, including the Mimbres River Valley, to explore archaic, Mogollon, and Apache rock art imagery spanning several millennia.

A slide lecture orientation at SFCC and 3 days of field study will draw parallels to other southwestern and Mesoamerican cultures, especially the prehistoric ceramic art of the Mimbres and Casas Grandes cultures, and discuss historic Apache and Zuni religious use of rock art imagery in a larger sacred landscape.

Site visits will involve short hikes, some of moderate difficulty over uneven terrain, with access to some sites by special permission from private landowners. Group car camping is available, as are motel accommodations in the Deming area.

The same course is offered twice by Ike Eastvold through the Center for Continuing Education, Santa Fe Community College.
