The Red Road

Celebrating resilience and sobriety in the Native American communities of southern Arizona.

Twelve years ago, Eddie Grijalva took on the task of celebrating resilience and sobriety in the Native American communities of southern Arizona. Grijalva, a mental health advocate with Pascua Yaqui and Tohono O’odham roots, worked with a handful of friends to pull together a community event at the last minute with a shoestring budget—and found that it filled a deep need in the people who attended. The Red Road to Wellbriety Celebration has since become an annual gathering in the San Xavier District of the Tohono O'odham Nation.
