hunter-gathers of Seminole Canyon
This mural is located at the Seminole Canyon Texas State Park and represents a rabbit hunt and life in the area 4,000 BC. The smoke is coming from the canyon, the sotol (desert candle) is reaching for the sky, the net is up and the chase of rabbits for supper is on. The closest figure is carrying a curved stick. This is much as it was then. These people lived in small groups of less than twenty, were egalitarian and had no personal possessions or ownership but shared all equally in their quest for survival. This culture survived for over 10,000 years unchanged in this harsh environment.
