Scouts at Huachuca in the 1920s and 1930s
In 1922 the scouts were moved to Fort Huachuca which would
become their permanent home until the remaining few retired
in 1947. At Huachuca they patrolled the boundaries of the military
reservation and took part in ceremonial functions, stirring
memories of a proud past.
Foods and Recipes from Native American Indian
Indian Cooking is a sensuous journey of color, scent, and
flavor through five North American regions. Using the bounty
of ingredients available such as avocados, sweet or
Idaho potatoes, pineapples, pumpkins, wild game, and seafood,
the American Indian first combined these gifts of the earth
into what many of us now consider to be traditional American
cooking. Offering such delicacies as Zuni green chili stew
and roast pheasant stuffed with grapes and nuts, plus simple
favorites such as baked acorn squash with honey and Chippewa
wild rice, The Art of American Indian Cooking presents some
of the best-loved dishes our continent has to impart.
Historic Preservation Program
1996 the national historic preservation program entered a new
era, as fourteen Indian tribes were approved by NPS to assume
national program responsibilities on tribal lands, pursuant
to Section 101(d) of the National Historic Preservation Act.
Among the responsibilities assumed by these tribes are conducting
historic property surveys, maintaining permanent inventories
of historic properties, nominating properties to the National
Register of Historic Places, and reviewing Federal agency
undertakings pursuant to Section 106 of the Act.
