About the Artist

"The Tohono O'odham are a Native American people of the Sonoran Desert, residing primarily in the U.S. state of Arizona and the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Tohono O'odham means "Desert People." The federally recognized tribe is known in the United States as the Tohono O'odham Nation.

The Tohono O'odham Nation or Indian Reservation is a major reservation located in southern Arizona, where it encompasses portions of three counties: Pima, Pinal and Maricopa in the United States. It also extends into the Mexican state of Sonora." Wikipedia

Near the turn of the century the label Papago Indians was rejected by citizens of this tribe, as "Papago"  referenced them as "bean eaters", which they considered unflattering.
