La Rumorosa Rock Art Along the Border
A Verde Valley Archaeology Fair Lecture. Join photographer and author Don Liponi for a discussion of the book "La Rumorosa Rock Art Along the Border," a survey of Kumeyaay and related artwork in Southern California, Colorado River Corridor, Western Arizona and Baja California. It is the first publication to focus on the indigenous rock art of this region. This book is testament to the historical permanence of Kumeyaay culture, and how art creation can help oppressed societies to survive cultural genocide committed against them. Almost none of the sites and photographs have ever been published.
Don will be selling and autographing his book during the two-day Fair. The book contains over 150 color photos and interviews with Tipai Native Americans with contributions by regional Native Americans and leading archaeologists like Ken Hedges, Steve Shackley, Polly Schaafsma, Lynn H. Gamble Michael Wilken-Robertson and Ben Swadley.
This Verde Valley Archaeology Fair lecture is free and open to the public, but a $5 donation per person at the door would be appreciated. Limited seating. Exact room location to be determined.
