Thousands of painted and carved rock art images, dating from A.D. 400 to the present, are located on mesa walls, boulders, and the interiors of caves around Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico. This book tells us what these images mean to the Zuni people, setting the rock art in their vast symbolic network of thought, verbal expression, and ritual action. This impressively researched and sensitive book will be welcomed by folklorists, anthropologists, linguists, and ethnoastronomers.
