Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue…and today, we make history here in Arizona as we celebrate the first Indigenous People’s Day. Phoenix is the now the largest U.S. city to rename Columbus Day, and was passed by a unanimous vote.

The purpose of the day is to promote Native American culture and history. As we know, Phoenix was built on what was the Hohokam civilization, and there is evidence of other groups of Indigenous People throughout the state. Whether you are working today or enjoying the day off, I hope you will take a moment to remember those who came before us, and the rich history we share with them in our beautiful state. Let’s make it a great week!

“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. We are more than the sum of our knowledge, we are the products of our imagination.” - Ancient Proverb

“There is a battle of two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth. The wolf that wins? The one you feed.” - Cherokee Proverb

"The death of fear is in doing what you fear to do." - Sequichie Comingdeer
