These new glyphs are substantially similar in form to ancient Chinese pictograms representing an elephant, dog, flower and ground, thread, teeth, and the ideogram for culture. Until now, the Asiatic pedigree of all of these images has been unrecognized in the North American rock writing record. In addition, comparative evaluations of three newly identified petroglyphs, analogous to the previously analyzed Chinese pictograms Ci, Shui, and Zhou, are included in this report.

Collectively, these ten supplementary pictogram-petroglyph appraisals provide persuasive evidence for the widespread use of complex Chinese scripts in ancient North American rock writing. Integral to these analyses, Appendix B provides an independent estimation for the age of the petroglyphs at the study sites.

Significantly, each of these appraisals incorporates the era when the studys matching Chinese pictograms are known to have been predominant in Asia. Nevertheless, the primary reliance of Native Americans upon memorization for preserving their customs and understandings, and their physical separation from continuous Asiatic influence, advocates for their continued use of archaic Asiatic script long after newer styles became popular in China.

Together with the documented ancient use of Chinese script pictograms in equally old examples of North American rock writing provided in Asiatic Echoes, the supplementary epigraphic evaluations presented in this addendum confirm and establish what has been theorized for over two hundred fifty years... that in pre-Columbian times, meaningful intellectual and cultural exchanges took place between the peoples of Asia and North America.
