The Roche-a-Cri Petroglyphs, also known as the Friendship Glyphs, are a Registered Historic Place in Roche-a-Cri State Park, near Friendship, Wisconsin. They consist of Oneota rock art, mostly petroglyphs resembling birds, canoes and geometric designs.[1] They were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.[2] The petroglyphs were vandalized by soldiers and area settlers between 1845 and the 1880s, notably Company D of the Wisconsin 1st Cavalry Sharpshooters in 1861.[3]
