Ancient Mysteries That Still Baffle Scientists Today

White Shaman Rock

The ancient Huichol tribe of Native Americans in the southwestern part of Texas engaged in cave and canyon drawing. Due to their remote location, they were able to stay clear of the Europeans who where settling other areas of the Sierra Madre Mountains for longer than other Native American tribes, but when the European settlers did begin to interact with them, they were startled to see the cave painting that has come to be called the White Shaman Rock.

The drawing, found in the Lower Pecos River Canyon, is at least 4,000 years old…much older than when the white Europeans became known to the Huichol people. So why would the Huichol paint one, very large, 24-foot tall depiction of a white person amid all their other cave drawings? Were the Hiuchol people once visited by a Caucasian person in their ancient past? Does the cave drawing actually show a ghost or spirit that is interacting with the Huichol warriors?
