Photo: Pascua Yaqui Mural & Geography

South Scottsdale's Pasqua Yaqui community is tiny.  The main Pascua Yaqui community in the area is located in Guadalupe, which is just south of Tempe, which is the suburb south of Scottsdale.  There is a 1,200 acre Pascua Yaqui Native lands outside of Tucson, with about 3,500 residents.

(I do not use the name for native lands that begins with an "r" because I do not believe it is appropriately respectful.)

This section of the mural shows the location of Pascua Yaqui communities in Arizona.  They travelled and lived in a variety of locations in pre-Columbian times, but had a 400 year history of conflict with the Spanish and Mexican governments that did not come to an end until 1929.  Some of them fled Mexico and settled in Arizona.  

They did not obtain the recognition of native lands in the US until 1964 and were not officially recognized as a tribe by the U.S. government until 1978.

This week we are featuring photos of Golden Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  Its elaborate temples are architectural treasures.
