This discussion will introduce the ancient people who lived, loved and died while creating a culture and rock art in the geographic area of southwest Texas known as the Lower Pecos Canyonlands. We will take a close look at the pictographs, the earliest ones in North America, and specifically the White Shaman panel that tells the religious and mythological beliefs of the people who painted it.
