White Shaman Preserve

Pecos Trail Region
Website

The White Shaman Preserve is one of the most well-photographed pictograph sites in the Lower Pecos. At the base of a 250' descent into a narrow brushy canyon, the sites walls encapsulate the basic religious principles of the prehistoric inhabitants of the Lower Pecos region. Regarded as one of the most cosmologically complex narratives in the world, the flight of the shaman to the land of spirits and his metaphorical death and rebirth are a message from the past about humanity's quest for answers to life's mystery.

The site is located on private land and can only be visited through tours arranged by the Witte Museum, which are available September thru May every Saturday at 12:30pm.
