  •  eagerly awaiting your article on the Yaqui and (7+ / 0-)

    the Tohono O'odham unless I missed it?

    Being as I live in between the Yaqui and Tohono O'odham nations here in the Altar Valley it's up close and personal......plus I've worked for both Nations, as a bingo caller oddly enough, before they had full casinos and only High Stakes Bingo Halls were allowed....

    I was working for the Yaqui nation when machine gaming was first allowed and it was a side room built onto the bingo hall....Now the new Casinos rival something in Vegas and the Yaqui nation just finished a huge and beautiful resort hotel between me and town.....

    I do want to go to the Yaqui Easter Ceremonies one day....That's a tribe that follows their religious tradition to the point that even their casinos are shut down for the 3 day Easter celebrations..........I find it a fascinating blend of old line Catholicism and the Native Yaqui traditions melded into a new creature after Padre Kino set up the missions.....
