Arizona's Greatest Battle

Fri, Sep 29th

2:00pm - 3:00pm

 

On September 1st, 1857, the biggest, single battle ever fought in Arizona only lasted half an hour. Largely unknown in the annals of Arizona history, it was perhaps the most important battle ever fought by the O’Odham (Pima) and Piipaash (Maricopa) people. Presenter Steve Hoza, currently working at the museum on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, explains how this single engagement ended hundreds of years of attacks from the traditional Piipaash enemies from the West.
