Description: These sites are located in Harney Basin at the interface of the Columbia Plateau and Great Basin cultural areas. Rock art from both these traditions is found intermingled in this region. The sites are located near Malheur and Harney lakes, which supported large American Indian populations for well over 10,000 years. Rattlesnake Rim contains numerous red pictographs of the Northern Oregon Rectilinear Style painted along a stretch of basalt rim rock. Buena Vista is a large site with Great Basin style petroglyphs in welded tuff and basalt.
