The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.”
Professor Baird challenged his class to try and translate the message of the petroglyphs. I was anxious to meet his challenge but found it to be a lot harder than it seemed.
I scratched my head as I tried to decode the drawings and nothing I came up with made sense. I desperately hoped this wouldn't count against our final grade. Then I came up with this interpretation:
“We rode our horses to capture our targets, our enemies. We had trouble communicating with them, but we find them to be very friendly. They raise goats. Taught us to raise goats. Then we have a feast and Native Tribal Dance to our Great Spirit that we be successful in the end.”
I was in trepidation waiting for my grade. This is what Professor Baird wrote on my paper,”I think you are very close to what they might be saying here.”
Thank you to Barbara Beacham for our photo prompt today and for hosting, Monday Finish the Story challenge. She gives us a photo prompt, the first sentence to our story, and approximately 150 words with which we are to write a story with. The challenge is fun and addicting and anyone is welcome to participate.
