The video is low-resolution (TV in 2008!) so opening it in another page may not help you much… but here's a link: https://youtu.be/pKxczQbXomY.

This blog has over 1,000 Tucson murals over the past 15 years. The number of murals in just these four Denver blocks is close to 2% of 15 years' worth of murals all over Tucson! That's a lot of murals in a small area — something like Fourth Avenue in Tucson. (Denver also has at least one neighborhood packed with even more murals called RiNo — which, by the way, has nothing to do with Donald Trump and Republicans.) This got me thinking that Tucson neighborhoods wanting more visitors could pack lots of murals in a few blocks.
All of these murals gave the area a (literally) artsy feel when I walked through it. Here are unedited quick snapshots of the murals I saw:

"The Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area is proud to commission another heritage mural that focuses on empowering indigenous youth to take the expressive traditions passed down from their communities and their own artistic style to paint their understanding of traditional stories, cultural figures and epic histories in a collaborative mural."
Two professional muralists worked with seven Pascua Yaqui youth to paint this mural. The names of the seven are: Jennay, Erik, Juliette, Raul, Santi, Johnny and Elijah.
|The professional muralists are Ignacio Garcia and Anitra "Yukue" Molina|

The mural is on the west wall of the Sonoran Stitch Factory located on W. Rillito St. The mural is seen from N. 15th Ave. A previous mural appeared on this wall on 10/19/2015 as Near Richey Elementary.
To further explain; the Yoeme are originally from Sonora Mexico around the Yaqui River. They are more commonly known in the U.S. as the Pascua Yaqui. The Yoeme are the only Native American tribe that has never officially surrendered to either the Spanish colonial forces, the Mexican government, or the United States.
Several updates from Jerry Peek: I made a note about a post and video I saw on Facebook July 1st showing the mural in progress and finished. (The unveiling was June 26th.)
