One evidence of Native Americans inhabiting the Mojave Desert is the rock
art that can be found on cave walls, boulders and cliff faces. There are
two kinds of rock art: pictographs (rock paintings) and petroglyphs
(rock carvings or engravings). Generally, petroglyphs are more common in
the Mojave Desert than pictographs.

Interesting in that later habitation sites are often found near clearly earlier petroglyph sites, but they are not
exclusive to each other.
