Apache Jii celebrates tradition

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 23rd, 2013

The Cibecue Elementary School Rainbow Dancers perform at Saturday’s Apache Jii.

Globe — This year’s Apache Jii in downtown Globe lived up to the grandeur and awe that have come to be expected by both locals and visitors. For one more glorious autumn day last Saturday, there was traditional Native American dancing and singing in the streets. There were people in spectacular Native garb. There was intricate beadwork, sand art and stone carvings steeped in the traditions handed down from years gone by.

After the eyes had taken in all they could see and the ears had delighted in the music, it was the fragrance of traditional Native American food that guided the nose to the food area.

There was an assortment of choices to indulge in, such as Native American tacos, fry bread and the elusive acorn stew that seems to only present itself at this time of year. The food court was an excellent opportunity for locals and visitors to mingle and compare the treasures they had chosen.

Greeting people as they wandered toward the various culinary delights was Dale Curtis Miles, a man who has served as San Carlos’ first historian.
