CDR-1236: SR Set: Native North American Art & Culture III: Southwest Native North American Art and Architecture

The distinctive cultures of the native people of the American Southwest is depicted here in images of architectural ruins, petroglyphs and pictographs of the Ancient Puebloan (Anasazi) people. Very much a part of the distinctive landscape of the region, the ruins and rock art evoke the era and mystery of the ancient peoples. In addition, images documenting the traditional communities of their descendants today, the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, etc are also included. Updated November 2013
