Mid Arizona Border, Part 6
The interior of the mission shows the dedication
the Spanish Franciscans ( who replaced the Jesuits in operating
the mission system) to the people of the area.
The mission is a major profit center to the Tohono
O'odham Nation, second only to their massive gambling casino.
Their casino is about the size of two super WalMarts.
This vast Nation is under threat. Because the
Department of Homeland Security's priorities do not include protecting
the thousands of peaceful people living on these lands, the Nation
has formed its own group to protect itself.
This Native American group is called The Shadow
Wolves. For decades they operated alone and without support. With
9/11, they were absorbed into the DHS structure. Suddenly, they
were reduced to being as effective as other DHS mandated agencies.
They have again been separated from DHS and act alone to protect
their people from the constant criminal onslaught along the border.
The Shadow Wolves are
even being used in Afghanistan to track Bin Laden.
