Apache Land

August 7th

Earlier this week, I was able to travel to the White River Apache Reservation in north eastern Arizona. I had never been to the reservation before and was interested to hear about the work our department was doing with the tribe. We attended a tribal health meeting – and then had a bit of time to see sights on the reservation before heading back to Phoenix.

It was one of those Arizona Highways kinda days. Bright blue skies, heavy white clouds, a flood of golden light. I was thankful we had time to wander before piling back in the car. A few shots, namely from the Theodore Roosevelt Boarding School site where Apache children were once housed and “educated.”

One Community: August

August 6th

One Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their homes and community with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art. this month, Sarah selected our words.
{I fell back on photos in my flickr account that work; all pertain to my life in Arizona — none are new. Adjusting to this new routine is still keeping me busy!}
