Zuni Whitmore Panel Stabilization

Protecting a Grand Canyon Treasure

The Whitmore Rock Art panel on the Colorado River is a tribally significant location to the Pueblo of Zuni, depicting the emergence of the Zuni into this (the fourth) world. For Zuni, this archaeological site continues to maintain life and spiritual forces of great importance. River runners often stop at the Whitmore panel as they head downstream. Grand Canyon Conservancy supporter donations helped preserve the rock art panel through the repair of a wall protecting the site from visitor impact and erosion. Together, we are honoring the future by protecting the past.

Location: River Mile 188 on the Colorado River.
