What has become known as the first Thanksgiving between the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims was a celebration of thanks due to the bountiful harvest and survival of that first year in Plymouth, MA. That feast evolved into what we know as the modern day Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving is a time for us to reflect and take stock of all that we have in our lives: our family, friends, health, pets, and your co-workers to name a few. Please have an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving holiday.

Interview with Napoleon Marrietta
What is your involvement in Native America heritage month?
My involvement in this year’s heritage month is speaking on issues that are going on in indigenous communities in the US and here in Arizona. Also helping out speaking on these issues as much as I can, more specifically on the loop 202 freeway.
Are you going to perform?
No, my involvement is more about speaking and addressing awareness. Also encouraging people to come out and support, that may be in donations, coming out to our prayer camp and showing support. Creating awareness and having more people being involved is key.
What tribe are you part of?
I am Akimel O’otham (River People), Tohono O’otham (Desert People) and Pii-Posh (Maricopa). Settlers called us “pima” which most are familiar with. However, we do not like to be addressed as that. Our ancestral homelands expand from the outskirts of Mexico to south phoenix.
How long have you been involved at this level?
I have been involved with many things involving my community for number of years. Other communities as well. Voices have only gotten stronger due to the fact that corporations are moving earth and starting construction.
What do you want your fellow co-workers to better understand?
Not sure. I speak to people all the time. Different ideas and ways to help are always appreciated. Connections on how we can stop these issues are always helpful too. However, I do recommend understanding and learning about the area, take care of it. Respect it. We have so much around us that we have stories about that people do not understand. Tempe butte aka “A” mountain is one of the examples. Since ASU, U of A and many other colleges sit on our territory, most people do not understand that. It’s more than just a running trail. People would not be here, if it wasn’t for the loss of my ancestors. Sad, but true. That is why we protect our O’otham jeved (Land) as much as we can.
Where can we find information about the Native America Heritage Month or other programs?
They have it posted on the student and cultural engagement page. https://eoss.asu.edu/student-engagement/culture/native-american
If you want to know more about the ways you can help protect our mountain I’ll be more than happy to speak to you about it. We do have a facebook page called Moadag Thadiwa. Also you can follow our ahwatukee brothers and sisters who are also in the fight on facebook. It’s PARC (Protecting Arizona’s Resources and Children).

I sit by the poolside, watching leaves swirling….
Just like dumbledore’s pensieve, my thoughts in torrents start gushing.
The sun’s hot outside, bouncing off the trees in a majestic green….
On festivals of rainy delight, the green transcends earthly beauty and
Becomes nature’s heavenly skin…
The birds chirp and so do their young ones…
Like music in silence they extol human virtue , even though they are not one.
Devoid of malice or prejudice does nature give and give…
Devour is all we do , both the queen , her progeny and of course , ourselves.
The meaning to this life escapes me …. And a stroll in the woods reminds me...
That the meaning is forever lost…but the humanity beneath it is immortal.
