Pictograph rock art at the Palatki site in Loy Canyon, Arizona. Most of the artwork is attributed to the Sinagua, who inhabited the area between 650AD and 1200AD, but in some cases artwork from other time periods is interspersed and overlayed with the Sinaguan. More primitive etchings date as far back as 6000 years, while a few markings were made by ancestral Apache more recently (confirmed by tribal elders). Pictographs are painted images, whereas petroglyphs are etchings performed by abrading the rock with the edge of another. Pictographs at this site are typically in white, red and black, or kaolin, hematite and charcoal. Archeologists believe that much of the art at the Palatki site relates to the dreamstate imagery of ancient Shamans. This image reflects the typical flat, protected rock face alcove on which Sinaguan art can be found, with numerous depictions of animals and references to life's journey on the Earth.

A thousand or more years ago, natives inhabited the lower elevations around the San Francisco Peaks of Northern Arizona. In an area so dry it would seem impossible to live, they built pueblos, harvested rainwater, grew crops, hunted game and raised families. Today the remnants of their villages dot the landscape along with other artifacts such as this obsidian projectile point from the Sinaguan era; about 500AD to 1450AD. Although commonly called an arrowhead, the point was probably not attached to an arrow or shot from a bow, a weapon not thought to be used by the Sinagua. More likely it was affixed to the tip of a spear and thrown to strike and kill game animals. It is unlawful to remove artifacts, such as this point, from a native site. They may be examined but must be returned to their original location. This projectile point was photographed at Sandy Seep in the Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff, Arizona, USA.
