    More support and opposition for Piestewa Peak
    THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2003

    Mary Helen Clancy: "The political hysteria surrounding the attempt to rename Squaw Peak after Pfc. Lori Piestewa is just short of ludicrous."

    Jacqueline Chee: "I truly believe that renaming Squaw Peak to Piestewa Peak would be most honorable to her family and a reminder to other Native Americans who reside in the Valley."

    Don Schreiber: "People too often become caught in the hysteria of the moment and make wrong decisions. Apparently, the governor and her spokeswoman are a couple of these people."

    Steve Weatherburn: "Piestewa Peak is a wonderful idea, and it is surprising that anyone should take issue with it."

      Some Ariz. Republicans unhappy with Piestewa plans
      THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2003

      An Arizona Republican says Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano is setting a "Clintonesque" tone for her administration by pushing to rename a mountain and highway for Lori Piestewa, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq.

      Napolitano wants Squaw Peak and Squaw Peak Freeway changed. Of the push, state Representative John Allen told the Associated Press: "It's going to be a very Clintonesque style in the sense where you take advantage, no matter whose grief it is."

      Meanwhile, The Arizona Republic reports that Napolitano's proposal will come before the Arizona State Board on Geographic and Historic Names. The board is meeting today and will take public comments on the name change. The Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the Hualapai Nation and the San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe have submitted letters of support.

      Napolitano, narrowly elected last year, has made an effort to reach out to tribes. The state signed onto an amicus brief in support of tribal rights in last month's Inyo County v. Bishop Paiute Tribe case, the first time state governments have sided with tribes at the Supreme Court.

        Editorial: Don't wait five years to change name
        THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2003

        The Arizona Daily Star in an editorial today says there is no reason why Squaw Peak shouldn't be changed to Piestewa Peak in honor of Lori Piestewa, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq.

        The paper criticizes opponents who accuse Gov. Janet Napolitano (D) of "politicizing" Piestewa's death. "[I]t is the opposition that seems to be practicing the political demagoguery," the paper responds.

        The paper also says the name can be changed now, in reference to state and federal rules governing geographic names for deceased individuals. "We note that the five-year waiting period is not a law. Rather it is a policy. As such, it can be waived."

          Column: What's Better - Squaw Peak or Piestewa Peak?
          THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 2003

          "We dishonor the memory of Lori Piestewa with our pettiness. She put on a uniform and went to war and was killed, leaving behind a loving family and two small children. In return we waste the opportunity to honor her sacrifice and mend a bleeding insult by depreciating her life and pouring salt on the wound.

          We do this by making complicated that which is simple. By allowing ego to replace common sense. By choosing prejudice over prudence. By foolishly taking our eye off the ball. To resolve this, we only need to ask ourselves a few simple questions."

                Squaw Peak highway changed in honor of Piestewa
                FRIDAY, MAY 2, 2003

                The Arizona Transportation Board voted 5-2 on Thursday to immediately rename Squaw Peak Freeway in honor of Lori Piestewa, the Hopi woman killed in action in Iraq.

                Another state board voted to rename Squaw Peak for Piestewa, 23. The U.S. Board of Geographic Names will consider the change this coming Thursday "because there's been so much controversy about it," The Arizona Republic reported.

                      Piestewa Peak

                      :Angel2 I'm calling it Piestewa Peak now because I believe it will happen. I encourage all you that have been blessed with a little extra to send it to the Lori Piestewa Memorial Fund established by the Wells Fargo Bank, I know they are in Cali and AZ, but don't know where else.

                      Also I spoke with Lori's Uncle Percy and he said to thank everyone that has sent cards and letters or donated money. The money will be spent on Lori's two children, the memorial fund will be split for upkeep now and the rest put away for college.

                      He said they are over-whelmed with the outpouring of love from the Ndn and non-Ndn public and they will send thank-you's to each and every one who sent a card or call or in anyway to expressed they love to the family and Lori's children.

                      Luv ya, comchocldy

                              U.S. board won't act on Piestewa Peak until 2008
                              FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2003

                              The U.S. Board on Geographic Names won't consider renaming Squaw Peak in Arizona to Piestewa Peak until 2008.

                              The board has a five-year waiting period on name changes for deceased individuals.

                              A state board has adopted the new name and Piestewa Peak will appear on state maps.

                                How do you pronounce Piestewa? Count the ways
                                FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2003

                                By now, everyone is familiar with the Piestewa name, which means "pool of still waters" in Hopi. Just how do you say it, The Arizona Republic asks.

                                The correct pronunciation is "pie-ESS-tuh-wah." First Lady Laura Bush may have said it that way, the paper says, but otherwise she "stumbled over the name several times" during a visit to the Navajo Nation yesterday.

                                "It's pronounced Squaw Peak," says an Arizona man, referring to the controversy over renaming the landmark Piestewa Peak.
