"Using the language, first of all just in Tucson, I think is important because this is traditional O'odham homeland," Ofelia Zepeda said. "So, just having the language visible for the public I think is a good thing, always."
The University of Arizona, Regents Professor of Linguistics and Director of the university's American Indian Language Development Institute and Tohono O'odham poet, Ofelia Zepeda was featured for her work as a poet with her poems engraved in granite on over a dozen boulders. The one-mile stretch of Mountain Avenue, from Ft. Lowell to Roger displays Ofelia's poetry.
