This time on The Children’s Hour, we explore petroglyphs with Ranger David Ottaviano from Petroglyph National Monument, and Todd Scissons, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer with Acoma Pueblo. Learn who made these ancient rock carvings, why they are so common in the desert Southwest, and what they mean to the people whose ancestors made them. Plus we find out about the Junior Ranger Program with the National Parks Service, and we hear from the kids in the Extinction Diaries about a rare and nearly extinct bird from New Zealand.
The Children’s Hour is supported by the Cultural Services Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund at the City of Albuquerque, city councilor Pat Davis, as well as Bernalillo County, New Mexico’s Commission. This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, and The Laughing Buddha Fund. Thank you to our listeners who contribute to us through the Paypal Giving Fund, Paypal, and by subscribing to our podcasts on Patreon.
