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.
