The Indians of northeastern North America are known to us
primarily through reports and descriptions written by European
explorers, clergy, and settlers, and through archaeological
evidence. An additional invaluable source of information is the
interpretation of rock art images and their relationship to native
peoples for recording practical matters or information, as
expressions of their legends and spiritual traditions, or as simple
doodling or graffiti. The images in this book connect us directly
to the Indian peoples of the Northeast, mainly Algonkian tribes
inhabiting eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland and the lower Potomac
River Valley, New York, New Jersey, the six New England States, and
Atlantic Canada. Lenik provides a full range of rock art
appearances in the study area, including some dendroglyphs,
pictographs, and a selection of portable rock objects. By providing
a full analysis and synthesis of the data, including the types and
distribution of the glyphs, and interpretations of their meaning to
the native peoples, Lenik reveals a wealth of new information on
the culture and lifeways of the Indians of the Northeast.
