Jewish Pioneers Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown, USA

Memorial erected in 1984 in the Jewish section of Boothill Graveyard to commemorate Jewish pioneers of the Wild West. The monument contains not only Jewish religious items but also Indian items and is decorated with a Hohokam symbol as well as a menorah. It was jointly supported by the Jewsih and the Indian communities and Judge C. Lawrence Huerta, a full-blooded Yaqui Indian, said: "A burial place is sacred to my people, and I wanted this place to be treated with the respect it once had. In honoring my Jewsih brothers I feel I am also honoring the lost and forgotten bones of my own people who lay there where they fell when the West was being settled." (bio by: David Conway)
