The Semiotics of Powerful Places

Rock Art and Landscape Relations in the Sierra Tarahumara, Mexico

2011 Journal of Anthropological Research 67(3):387-420

“Situated in places rich in symbolism, relationship, affect, and embodied history, the semiotics of rock art are interpreted and re-invented by contemporary Rarámuri, non-Rarámuri locals, tourists, and anthropologists. Rock art provokes narratives of local history, past interactions with other peoples (especially Apache/Ndee), and complex identity narratives.”
