The inspiration for the mural map is based off of a late 1920s Archaeological map of the Hohokam canal system and ancient village sites. It has the original names of some of the local mountain ranges which are written out in the O'odham language.
2. Give us a childhood memory of a map.
I remember when I was about 7 or 8, My great grandmother in Oklahoma had a world map on her wall, and it had all these little colored pins stuck into each country and city that her and my great grandfather had been in their lifetime. Their were button everywhere, from Central and South America to all over Europe.
3. Do you think maps and cartography are important? Why?
How else are we gonna find that buried treasure?
4. What are your map's boundaries and how did you choose them?
My boundaries I chose are the greater Phx area... Mesa to the Salt River Community, Scottsdale, to Glendale, West Phx, South Mtn and back down to Chandler.
