Onyx Canyon Arizona Site Steward File

Author(s): Alan Olson; Scott Wood; Roger Kelly

Year: 2003


This is an Arizona Site Steward file for the Onyx Canyon site, comprised of two rock shelters with pictographs and bedrock grinding features, located on Tonto National Forest land. The site may be Apache, Archaic, Hohokam, Salado, or a combination thereof; although the documents appear to favor Apache origin.

The file consists of a site data form, heritage inventory form, an archeological and historical site inventory form, a hand drawn site map, a Museum of Northern Arizona site card, a black and white image of one of the pictographs, and a map of the site location. The earliest dated document is from 1954.
