Expedition Riacho do Bojo, Casa Santa e Cardão The main purpose of the expedition was exploring and taking pictures of rock art paintings and engravings along the Riacho do Bojo (Bojo’s streamlet), during the trail, we climbing up the streamlet until one of the biggest rock art shelter called Casa Santa, and we looked for an alternative trail linked to Casa Santa until Furna do Messias, located in Cardão. The access is difficult as the distance between the both rock art shelter . Due the rash winter the last two years and there wasn’t any cattle to feed the bush, the access is really difficult, even tough we accomplished the trail and at the end of the evening we returned home. Hugs of Júlio César and Dean Caatinga’s Adventures. Both rock arts and petroglyph are located in the Rural Zone of Carnaúba dos Dantas town.

Caatinga acording to Tupy Language spoke by Indigenous Peoples means "Wood Bush". Well as I told before, we're going to create a NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION here in Brazil ONG, first of all, one of the purpose is to plant trees in the middle of Caatinga ecosystem that's why due the deforestation caused by Ceramic Industry and the Livestock exploration. Check out the picture bellow where Students of Joao Henrique school and coordinated by Teacher José Adenilson, Jailma and Anna both Agronomist Engineers and me Carlos. Here we're developing a project named adopt a tree, in particular planting native trees of the biome Caatinga. No longer until December we’re going to getting started the NGO. Do not forget to spread this blogs for friends, thanks for your help advanced.

The name of the indigenous inscriptions (rock art painting) known as Northeast Traditions. They were made by the ancestors of Indigenous peoples that when the Europeans reached the coast they found out them. Named Caririris, but according to the archaeologists the rock art paintings were made around over 9.000 Before Present. This archaeological site is located at 15 kilometres far from the Carnauba dos Dantas. It is very similar to Serra da Capivara State, due the shape and smaller details. And of course we went to the Furna do Messias last year in order to register and take pictures. That it the next issue I'm going to talk more about the Aventureiros da Caatinga.
