Join us for Season 4, Episode 7 of the Peabody Diggin’ In series, Chicanx in the Wilderness: Arborglyphs, Perceptions of People and Place, and the Role of Archaeology in Chicana/o Studies

Historic and modern tree graffiti, also known as arboglyphs, left by Chicanx and Latinx in Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico can uniquely shape our understanding both of these peoples and the places they inhabited. Archaeologists have long countered ideas that graffiti is solely a modern expression of urban decay with studies that bring forth concepts of resistance and empowerment pushed back into prehistory and across the world. The fact that arboglyphs are often found in wilderness areas has generated special interest among archaeologists and Chicanx material culture in wild places challenge assumptions and expand ideas about what wilderness means and who Chicanx are.
