The First People of the Mojave Desert


 

 

Projects For You

Just for Teachers
There are many petroglyphs found in the Mojave Desert.

The exact location of many rock art sites is not publicized to prevent vandalism (damage caused by people drawing on the rocks or breaking the petroglyphs off to take them home.)

It is up to everyone to protect these artifacts (old objects made by man).
