“Arizona’s Greatest Battle”

November 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRP-MIC) will sponsor a presentation on Tuesday, November 10, 2015, given by Huhugam Ki Museum Archivist Steve Hoza on what is perhaps the most important battle that the O’Odham (Pima) and Piipaash (Maricopa) ever fought. The Battle of Maricopa Wells, fought in 1857 between Pima and Maricopa warriors on one side and Yuma, Mohave, Apache, and Yavapai warriors on the other, is the subject of the book Massacre on the Gila: An Account of the Last Major Battle Between American Indians With Reflections on the Origin of War, by Clifton B. Kroeber and Bernard L. Fontana. Steve will share his recent research and new insights about this event. Come find out the who, what, where, and why of this little-known conflict, examine re-created weapons from both sides, and enjoy the light dinner to be provided by SRP-MIC. This free presentation will be held from 6-7:30 PM at the Salt River Community Building, 1880 N. Longmore Road (just north of the intersection of McDowell Road and Longmore), Scottsdale, Arizona. For more information call 480-362-6342.
