Marks of the Ancestors: Ancient Indian Rock Art of Arizona, Peter Blystone & Brian Cass
1994, Echo Productions in cooperation with the Museum of Northern Arizona, color, VHS, 40 minutes

This entertaining video explores the Rock Art of six areas of Arizona, including Hopi sites at Wupatki, Navaho and pre-Navaho art at Canyon de Chelly, sheep motifs and 'textile' motifs of the Hohokam at Cerro Prieto in Tohono O'odham territory, the rock art of South Mountain adjacent to Phoenix, Hualapai territory in the Kingman area along the Colorado River, and the Red Rock Country of the Sedona area. The authorities who contribute their insight and knowledge into the significance, importance and meaning of the Rock Art include many local Native Americans (which is the real strength of this production), as well as non-native authorities including Polly Schaafsma and Peter Pilles. See Ken Hedges' review in the Summer 1994 issue of La Pintura (ARARA).
