Skagit River: Your Mission

Join research teams in Utah to learn about Native American people who lived over 2,000 years ago. We can study these people by looking at the over 300 rock art paintings that still exist today.

Through this art, we can learn about these ancient peoples. Through field reports, photographs, and interviews with scientists and others on the scene, you will discover firsthand how Earthwatch teams uncover these clues and work to preserve this important historical record. You'll also do your own research on Native Americans, and share it with the world by publishing your findings on this site.

  • Learn about Native American cultures, past and present.
  • Learn about Earthwatch's research and why it is important.
  • Look at ancient Native American art and try to learn its meaning.
  • See how scientists and volunteers gather the rock art images and study their significance.
  • Learn about Native American cultures, past and present.
  • Do your own research on Native American cultures.

  Listen to Shayne Russell, your teacher host, as she explains your mission.
