Elders and workers of the Toiyabe Indian Health Project Inc. from Lone Pine and Bishop, California pose for a picture during their tour of Little Petroglyph Canyon, at China Lake. This event was supported by the Stationâ€™s Lead Archaeologist Mr. Mike Baskerville and Native American Tribal Liaison, Ms. Kish LaPierre. The mission of the Toiyabe Indian Health Project, Inc. is to improve and establish programs, policies and actions which focus on developing and maintaining healthy individuals, families, and Indian communities while fostering Tribal sovereignty, self-sufficiency, and cultural values. The elders ended their day back at the vehicles with a picnic lunch and discussion of the petroglyphs and the probable importance of these features to their ancestors.
