    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.

    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.

    So be it....

    Anyways, she as One represents all Natives on this great Big Continent....

    Both women and Men Natives....... ! It is about time the DOT took off that nassy sign ( Name ) off that Peak and Freeway... I am sure it was done on purpose in the past to degrade Natives, surely it was not to honor Women...

    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

    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.

    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."
