Tucson artist and yoga instructor Maria Arvayo, who is also a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, talks about her passions and inspiration from the Sonoran Desert landscapes. She is one of many Native American artists who have exhibited at the Amerind Foundation east of Tucson, between Benson and Willcox just south of I-10. The Amerind (from American Indian) Foundation was founded in 1937 as a private, nonprofit archaeological research institution but later opened as a museum, art gallery and research center.
