    THE FINAL INSPECTION

    The soldier stood and faced God,
    Which must always come to pass,
    She hoped her shoes were shining,
    Just as brightly as her brass.

    "Step forward now, you soldier,
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My Church have you been true?"

    The soldier squared her shoulders and
    said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
    Because those of us who carry guns,
    Can't always be a saint.

    I've had to work most Sundays,
    And at times my talk was tough,
    And sometimes I've been violent,
    Because the world is awfully rough.

    But, I never took a penny
    That wasn't mine to keep...
    Though I worked a lot of overtime
    When the bills got just too steep,

    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear,
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I've wept many tears.

    I know I don't deserve a place
    Among the people here,
    They never wanted me around,
    Except to calm their fears.

    If you've a place for me here, Lord,
    It needn't be so grand,
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don't, I'll understand."

    There was a silence all around the throne,
    Where the saints had often trod,
    As the soldier waited quietly,
    For the judgment of her God.

    "Step forward now, you soldier,
    You've borne your burdens well,
    Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
    You've done your time in Hell."

      Piestewa Looked at as a Trailblazer

      Piestewa story extends beyond Indian Country
      THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003

      Lori Ann Piestewa, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq, is the focus of worldwide attention for a number of reasons, The Arizona Republic reports.

      One is her background: she is one of the few Native American women in the service. Another is that she was a young, 23-year-old single mother of two.

      "People want to have some way to respond to all of this tragedy. And Lori, being a single mother, a Native American - in spite of everything she had to lose - went off and did everything she could do," observer Rep. Trent Franks, (R-Ariz.).

      Piestewa is the first U.S. servicewoman killed in the Iraqi war and is believed to the be the first Native woman in U.S. military service to die in combat.

      "She's a trailblazer," said Gary Laderman, a professor and author.

        Squaw Peak to Piestewa Peak?

        Indianz.Com. In Print.

        Don't expect Piestewa Peak any time soon
        THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003

        Federal rules prohibit naming or renaming a geographic feature in honor of a deceased person within five years of the date of death, The Arizona Republic reports.

        That means a proposal to change Squaw Peak near Phoenix, Arizona, to Piestewa Peak in honor of Lori Ann Piestewa, 23, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq will have to wait until at least 2008.

        The U.S. Board of Geographic Names also has a rule that requires a close association between a name and the person. Piestewa grew up on the Navajo Reservation hundreds of miles away from Phoenix, a board official said.

          Footnotes to a war: What about Private Lori?

          Footnotes to a war: What about Private Lori?
          THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003

          "This is the tale of two privates. They were sisters-in-arms - two young women fighting for Uncle Sam. They were roommates at Fort Bliss military base in Texas; tentmates in the Gulf, and close friends at all places in between. Then they (and 13 other members of the US Army's 507th Maintenance Company) took a wrong turn in the southern Iraqi city of Nassiriya and were ambushed. One, Jessica Lynch, 19, was injured, hospitalised and then rescued by Special Forces to emerge as the poster girl for American resilience and camaraderie. The other, Lori Piestewa, 23, was killed, with the gruesome distinction of being the first native American in the US army to be killed in combat and the only American servicewoman to die in this war."

            Column: Name change is more than just symbolism
            THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003

            "I'm afraid that I made a mistake when I suggested that we change Squaw Peak to Piestewa Peak in honor of Lori Piestewa, the 23-year-old Hopi soldier who died in Iraq. It would be a lovely symbolic gesture for sure, but after all these years in the newspaper business I should know that symbolism doesn't pay the bills. Symbolism doesn't put food on the table. Symbolism doesn't pay for college tuition. And Lori Piestewa, a soldier and proud Native American woman, had two beautiful kids."

              Well, we can still start calling it Piestewa Peak NOW, even if it isn't official. Then, with a well-established colloquial name in place for five years, it might be all that much more reason for the government to cave and follow through with the name change.

              NEXT on the agenda, one day perhaps .... change "Mount Rainier" back to reflect its TRUE name, "Tahoma".....

                  Piestewa, the Lady Warrior, honored at pow-wow

                  Piestewa, the Lady Warrior, honored at pow-wow
                  FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2003

                  Lori Piestewa, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq, was honored at the recent Northern Arizona University pow-wow.

                  Members of the Piestewa family attended the March 5 event, held one day after the military confirmed Piestewa died in combat. Piestewa's brother, Wayland, spoke to the crowd.

                  "If you listen very carefully, each and every one of us have to become warriors," he said, The Navajo Times reported. "We have been called to be warriors, it is your calling to be warriors. Become warriors of your tribes, nations as we have learned from our sister."

                  Also, members of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony held in support of Piestewa yesterday. One of Piestewa's first cousins lives on the Reno-Sparks reservation.

                    Reservation honors American Indians in military

                    Posted on Thu, Apr. 10, 2003

                    Reservation honors American Indians in military

                    DAVE KOLPACK
                    Associated Press

                    FORT YATES, N.D. - Members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe took to the streets Thursday to pray for world peace and honor tribal members who are serving in the military and fighting in Iraq.

                    The parade featured about 20 vehicles, including buses and pickup trucks decorated with American flags, balloons and posters with the names of tribal members in the armed forces.

                    "It's kind of a hard time right now," said Lonnie Wise Spirit, who participated in a drum ceremony during the parade. "There are a lot of people from the reservation over there (in the Middle East) and I think people tend to forget that."

                    His sister, Bobbi Jo Wise Spirit, helped organize the parade, which was originally planned in conjunction with a weeklong tribute to youth.

                    "We decided to change the theme to world peace and support our people over there," she said. "We can't stop the war, but we can pray for their safe return."

                    About 125 Standing Rock members are serving in the military, said Charles Murphy, tribal chairman. About 25 of those soldiers are stationed in the Middle East, he said.

                    "We're thankful to our soldiers for fighting the evils of Saddam Hussein," Murphy said.

                    Murphy's executive secretary, Arlene Cordova, has a son, Avery White Lightning, who is serving with the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division. He arrived in Iraq last week.

                    "Arlene tries to keep herself occupied, but in the mornings, you can tell, she's hurting," Murphy said.

                    Cordova said she talked to her son on the telephone shortly after he arrived in the Middle East. He told her he was scared.

                    "Avery told me they were told the war could last 130 days to 365 days," Cordova said. "And after that, there's cleanup."

                    White Lightning, 20, graduated from Standing Rock Community School in 2001. He participated in football and track and was nominated for homecoming king, Cordova said.

                    White Lightning enlisted in June 2001.

                    "He made the decision to enlist on his own, so I thought that was a good thing," Cordova said. "But now I'm really nervous. It's difficult to watch."

                    Several employees at the tribe's Prairie Knights Casino were called up by the National Guard as part of the Iraqi military operation, Murphy said.

                    "We're all glued to CNN," he said.

                    Tribal officials held a worship service last week to pray for those soldiers, Murphy said. Part of the service was dedicated to Lori Piestewa, a Hopi woman from Arizona who died in Iraq a couple of weeks ago.

                    "She was an honorable Army soldier," Murphy said.

                    Murphy, one of several tribal members who served in Vietnam, said the war in Iraq has conjured up bad memories among veterans.

                    "Some of them are having nightmares and some of them are ready to pick up arms and go," Murphy said. "We try to focus on something else, because it bothers us."
                    Everything is gonna be alright!

                      U.S. Senate on L. Piestewa

                      From the U.S. Senate in L. Piestewa

                      Private Piestewa is the first Native American woman in the U.S. Armed
                      Forces ever to die as a result of combat.
                      TRIBUTE TO PRIVATE FIRST CLASS LORI PIESTEWA

                      Mr. DASCHLE. Mr. President, I want to take just a couple of minutes of
                      my leader time to make a statement with regard to a very special young
                      woman.

                      Throughout America--especially in Native American communities--
                      Americans are grieving the loss in combat of Army PFC Lori Piestewa.

                      But we are also feeling pride for Lori Piestewa's remarkable life.

                      PFC Piestewa was a member of the Army mechanics unit that was ambushed
                      by Iraqi soldiers on March 23. Her body, and the remains of eight
                      other
                      soldiers, were recovered last week from a hospital in southern Iraq
                      when
                      Special Forces stormed the hospital to rescue another member of the
                      507th Maintenance Company, PFC Jessica Lynch.

                      Private Piestewa is the first Native American woman in the U.S. Armed
                      Forces ever to die as a result of combat.

                      She was 23 years old. She leaves behind two small children--a
                      4-year-old
                      son and a 3-year-old daughter. . . .She also leaves behind a
                      broken-hearted but proud family--and countless friends.

                      There are more than 12,000 Native Americans serving in our military
                      today--including many from my State of South Dakota.

                      They and Private Piestewa are part of a noble tradition that too few
                      Americans know much about.

                      It is a tradition that includes heroes like the ``Code Talkers'' of
                      World War II--the service members from the Lakota, Navajo and other
                      Indian nations who developed the only military code that was never
                      broken by the Japanese.

                      The Code Talkers were key to U.S. victories throughout the Pacific
                      theater. Their service helped turn the tide of the war--and saved
                      untold
                      numbers of American lives.

                      Today, Private Piestewa takes her place alongside them as an American
                      who risked everything to protect her land and her people.

                      Over the weekend, memorials began to appear all over the reservation
                      near Tuba City, AZ, where Private Piestewa grew up and where her family
                      still lives.

                      At one of the memorials, someone left a group of red, white, and blue
                      balloons. Included in the bunch was one green balloon, the team color
                      for Tuba City High School, where Lori Piestewa had been a softball star
                      and a junior ROTC commander.

                      On May 24, Private Piestewa will be honored at another memorial.

                      Red rose petals will be placed in her honor in the reflecting pool of
                      the Women in Military Service for American Memorial at Arlington
                      National Cemetery.

                      When I heard about the memorials to Private Piestewa, I thought of
                      another cemetery--at Wounded Knee, on the Pine Ridge reservation in
                      South Dakota.

                      I remember the first time I visited it. As I walked toward the
                      cemetery,
                      I was surprised to see little American flags dotting many of the
                      graves.
                      When I got close enough to read the headstones, I could see that many
                      of
                      the people there were veterans.

                      Some--like Private Piestewa--had died in the service. Others had died
                      years after they took off the uniform. But they wanted it recorded on
                      their graves: This person loved this Nation.

                      I have never seen a more profound expression of American patriotism.

                      The thoughts and prayers of our Nation are with the family and friends
                      of PFC Lori Piestewa.

                      She was an American hero. We are deeply grateful to her for her service
                      and sacrifice--and to all Native Americans who are serving, and have

                          Wow - thanks for posting this - it makes me very proud.

                          I, like so many of us here, have never met or had heard of Lori Piestewa before the Iraqi war, but nevertheless, my heart is very heavy of all that she sacrificed for our country. To know that a single mother like her has given the ultimate sacrifice - well - makes me want to work harder to keep her spirit and all our cultures alive.
                          Everything is gonna be alright!

                          Be blessed - got love???

                            A proud People

                            There are many customs and beliefs amoung our PEOPLE, inclusive of all tribes and nations. We, each of us, should take a moment of each day to stand with bare feet on Mother Earth, raise our Spirits heart and give thanks to Creator, or which naming is used, for each day we are gifted to see, feel, touch, smell, or hear all that is our Earth and our family. Stand proud and remember all who pass over before us by saying thank you.

                            I stood with bare feet on Mother Earth this morning as the sun rose in the sky and sang.....loudly and clearly.....in honor of our Sister. I am but one voice.....imagine what thousands would be like

                            These tears and the quickened beat of my heart, after reading this posting and several others, reminds me....I am a Human Being.......

                            Wado!


                            Sakwayi
                            May my heart always be open to listen to those who speak with their's. May I wake in humility to thank Creator for one more day as a human being and close my eyes in thanksgiving for the gift of the lessons I learned.

                              More opinions on renaming peak for Piestewa
                              FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2003

                              Peggy Nelson: "Please, give us a break. "Squaw" is a term that is not used in any reference, negative or positive, to a woman in present society."

                              David McDaniel: "Piestewa Peak? Great idea, wrong location, wrong reason. We should name a beautiful natural structure in northeast Arizona for Pfc. Lori Piestewa. However, to link the death of this lady with the phony "squaw" issue is absolutely atrocious."

                              Wilmer Joshevama: "Piestewa is an appropriate name for a peak that provides runoff for our desert environment. Even if the name change has to wait, it will be an honorable one for our country."

                              George Garbell: "Trying to capitalize on the patriotic feelings of Arizonans regarding Pfc. Lori Piestewa to achieve a name change for Squaw Peak is disgusting."

                              Daniel W. Foree: "To our late Barry Goldwater, Squaw Peak and the Hopi and Navajo people were very special. It would honor both Barry Goldwater and all tribes in Arizona if Squaw Peak was renamed "Piestewa Peak," in memory of one of my heroes, Lori Piestewa."

                                First American female and Native soldier killed in Iraq War is remembered

                                Posted: April 11, 2003 - 10:46am EST
                                by: Staff reports

                                TUBA CITY, Ariz. - The Pentagon identified Pfc. Lori Piestewa as one of the soldiers found dead during the rescue of an American POW in Iraq.

                                Sen. Tom Daschle D-S.D. spoke of the Hopi warrior on the floor, April 7. "Private Piestewa is the first Native American woman in the U.S. armed forces ever to die as a result of combat. She was 23 years old. She leaves behind two small children, a 4-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter. She also leaves behind a broken-hearted but proud family and countless friends."

                                Daschle emphasized the sometimes unrecognized forces of Native Americans serving the United States military. "There are more than 12,000 Native Americans serving in our military today - including many from my state of South Dakota. They, and Pfc. Piestewa, are part of a noble tradition that too few Americans know much about. It is a tradition that includes heroes like the "Code Talkers" of World War II, the service members from the Lakota and Navajo and other Indian nations who developed the only military code that was never broken by the Japanese. … Today, Pfc. Piestewa takes her place alongside them as an American who risked everything to protect her land and her people."

                                Percy Piestewa, Lori’s mother, released a rare statement April 6, after asking the media to respect the family’s privacy, responding to the outpouring of sympathy from the nation and world, thankful for all the support. "People from all over the world, from all over the nation, from people who feel as if Lori were their own daughter. We ask people that they hug their little ones, tell them how much they mean to them - all the naliis (paternal grandmothers), all the kids."

                                The bodies of the eight soldiers were found when U.S. troops raided the hospital where Pfc. Jessica Lynch was being held captive, the Pentagon reported. Seven of those soldiers were members of Lynch’s unit, the Fort Bliss, Texas-based 507th Maintenance Company, which was ambushed near Nasiriyah on March 23.

                                Several prayer services were held in honor of the Hopi solider and other military personnel since the family received news of Piestewa’s disappearance weeks ago. Percy Piestewa’s statement also said that Lori’s deeply held religious beliefs likely helped sustain the soldier in her final hours and that "God took her so that she no longer would be suffering." In Associated press reports, Lori’s brother Wayland spoke to reporters saying, "Our family is proud of her. She is our hero. We are going to hold that in our hearts. She will not be forgotten. It gives us comfort to know that she is at peace right now."

                                Hopi Tribal Chairman Wayne Taylor said in a statement on April 4, "The tragedy has rocked the very foundation of the Hopi reservation since many of us have been continually praying with the Piestewa family for Lori’s safe return."

                                Wayland Piestewa added, "We ask you to continue to pray for all the troops, all the servicemen and women and the world leaders ... so that our children will know one day what it is to live in a world of peace and so that there will be a quick end to this conflict as well as other conflicts around the world."

                                According to Daschle, Piestewa will be honored at another memorial on May 24. Red rose petals will be placed in the reflecting pool of the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery in her honor.

                                Daschle continued, "The thoughts and prayers of our nation are with the family and friends of Pfc. Lori Piestewa. She was an American hero. We are deeply grateful to her for her service and sacrifice - and to all Native Americans who are serving, and have served, our nation in uniform."

                                Memorial funds created for Piestewa

                                Friends and family of Lori Piestewa have established a memorial fund for her 4-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, who are being cared for by their grandparents in Tuba City. Those wishing to contribute to the fund, which will be used to raise the children and for their future educational needs, can send checks to "Lori Piestewa’s Memorial Fund" at Wells Fargo Bank Account #0464633783.
