Locating a treasure in plain sight

Today researching one of the most well-traveled sources from the early American Southwest, I came across something amazing–a (potential) form of pre-Native literacy, or at least reference to it.

Of course, this is key to my argument about Wakara and the Utes’ sophisticated understanding and deployment of “archival” history, even if we Roman-script readers aren’t literate enough to read it.

All this to say, very exciting!
