Leanne Shearer, Cultural Resources of the Kaibab Paiute Tribe
    The Kaibab Paiute are a member of the larger Southern Paiute Nation which covers along the
    southern Great Basin and San Juan Colorado River drainage. They trace their ancestry back over
    10,000 years to the Desert Culture. At that time, the Great Basin of the Southwest dried up and
    the Kaibab Paiute strategy changed from big game hunting to small game hunting and plant gathering.
    About 1150 C.E. the Kaibab Paiute extended their geographic range to further into the Colorado
    Plateau. Ms. Shearer will describe the cultural resource programs of the tribe.

    twentieth century ranch can be found under the shade of an oasis of cottonwood trees, fed by the

DASIA Field Trip - Parowan Gap Rock Art / Autumn Equinox
    The Parowan Gap is an incredible area with a plethora of prehistorical and historical values. Listed on
    the National Register of Historic Places, the Parowan Gap includes many petroglyphs of native people,
    markings from Spanish explorers and 19th century pioneers. The area today is still used for livestock
    grazing. The petroglyphs found at the Gap are speculated to have many possible meanings depending
    on who interprets them. The autumn equinox takes place earlier in the week, but will still be evident in
    the layout of some ancient markers on the site.
