Mr. Pitts will offer some possible answers to these questions. Mr. Pitts has studied the phenomenon of lightning bolt tracks on rock surfaces, called rock furgulites, for years. His research has raised a number of questions pertaining to the frequency of those strikes, the dating of them and the possible connection to the associated rock art. Since little has been established scientifically in relation to lightning bolt strikes, the field is wide open. Nevertheless, Mr. Pitts will put forth certain theories that hopefully will lead to a lively discussion on the topic and help to expand the understanding of the relationship between one aspect of nature and the life patterns of Native Americans.
Refreshments will be served. A donation of $10 per person is suggested.
