The Upper Midwest Rock Art Research Association is dedicated to publicizing the petroglyph and pictograph research being conducted in the Upper Midwest of the United States, including - but not limited to - Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North and South Dakota. We would like to change the articles on this website on a periodic basis - the frequency of which has yet to be determined. It is our intention to make this an "open page", with contributions from both professional scholars and avocationals welcome. Those of you who may be interested in commenting on or contributing to this page need only click on the email addresses at the bottom.
We at UMRARA believe that the proper stewardship and non-intrusive investigation of these sites provides lasting information that is crucial to the understanding of the people and cultures that have existed here over the millenia.
