Vision Quest

A pictograph panel of seven shield-bearing warriors stands guard over the rising Milky Way. The various Native American rock art drawings in this central Montana location date from 1,000 B.C. to 1850 A.D., with this panel dating between 1400 and 1700 A.D. Large shields such as these pre-date the arrival of horses to Montana, when all of the horse-owning tribes switched to smaller shields that were more manageable at a full gallop.
