Shamans in various cultures believe that certain places in nature
are imbued with special spiritual powers.
Adrian Smith, a Concow Maidu Indian, and former head of the Butte
County Tribal Council, personally took me to various rock art sites
in California...in Plumas and Siskiyou County.
I have also seen petroglyphs in the Middle Fork Canyon of the Feather
When I was a boy, my father took me on his mining trips to the high
Sierras. We saw a large petroglyph site in Plumas County. This inspired
my interest in rock art, which has lasted all my life.
