Black Rock

William A. Dodge

University Press of Mississippi

The mesas, drainages, springs, and lava flow that make up the Black Rock landscape have been formed over the eons by natural forces and interpreted by modern-day geologists. These landforms have also been interpreted by the imagination and spiritual beliefs of the Zuni people themselves. This chapter discusses how the interplay between these two world views paints a fascinating picture of Black Rock.

Keywords:   Black Rock, landscape, landforms, spiritual beliefs, Zuni people
