Pueblo Grande Museum Changing Name to “S’edav Va’aki Museum” https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/sedav-vaaki-museum/2705S’edav Va’aki Museum3/24/2023 3:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2705/Sedav Vaaki Museum Front.jpgPueblo Grande Museum Changing Name to “S’edav Va’aki Museum” <div class="ExternalClass92E83DB154B84FB1AADCA3B5EFCAAEEB"><html> <p>​During a Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board Meeting on Thursday, March 23, 2023, the board voted unanimously to change the name of Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park to “S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum."</p> <p>The name S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki (Salt River Pima – Maricopa Indian Community spelling) or Central Vahki (English spelling) is an O'Odham name that reflects the connection the site has with the local O'Odham and Piipaash communities. S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki refers to the large platform mound (Va'aki) that is preserved at the site, and the central location of this ancestral village within the Salt River Valley and to the extensive canal system created by these exceptional engineers before Euro-Americans moved into the region.</p> <p>The Parks and Recreation Board also approved the use of the marketing tagline, “Gateway to Phoenix Heritage."</p> <p>“Renaming the Pueblo Grande Museum to the S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum could not come at a better time as our city celebrates Phoenix History Month. The name change reflects our commitment to honoring the Indigenous people who helped build our community thousands of years ago. I look forward to the continued educational impact this museum will have on all Phoenicians," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.</p> <p>“S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum will continue to be an amazing resource for Phoenix history," District 8 Councilmember Carlos Garcia said. “We must ensure that our local institutions are reflecting the diversity of our area and taking steps to recognize and celebrate all cultures."</p> <p>“This is an important step for our City," said Kelly Dalton, Chair of the Parks and Recreation Board. "This new name reflects our commitment to honoring those who have shaped our culture and history."  </p> <p>“Words and titles matter. This name change will help to have a greater and more direct impact on how this significant ancestral site is interpreted," said Shane Anton, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Tribal Historic Preservation Officer.</p> <p>The previous name, Pueblo Grande, is defined in the Spanish language and denotes the site as a “pueblo," which is not how the O'Odham would describe their villages or habitation sites. </p> <p>The museum exists to preserve and help interpret the site and the ancestral occupation and to bring attention to living indigenous communities. Located on a site with one of the few remaining platform mounds (Va'aki) differentiates the museum from other museums in Phoenix. Rebranding the museum with an appropriate O'Odham name will better serve museum audiences. This change will elevate the museum's profile and increase interest in the site.</p> <p>Throughout summer and fall, the museum will gradually begin transitioning signage throughout the museum and on the website. </p> <p>In fall of 2023, the new S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum will unveil its new logo during a “reopening" event.</p> <p>The Parks and Recreation Department acknowledges the City of Phoenix is located within Native Land.

The exhibit explores the layers, complications, and duality of juxtaposing contemporary O'Odham with traditional narratives and ancestral ties to the Phoenix basin and throughout the Sonoran Desert. This exhibit was generously funded by the Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum. <br><br> Thomas 'Breeze' Marcus has been spray-painting large-scale murals throughout the City of Phoenix for nearly three decades. He is also a studio painter and has done work for various museum collections and exhibits throughout the country. Marcus' art is directly inspired by graffiti, public art, contemporary Native issues, and his Akimel and Tohono O'Odham heritage. By finding and creating parallels in his artwork, Marcus carries on a long lineage of creative and innovative history in the Phoenix area. <br><br> When Rez Dogs Howl will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from July 7, 2022 to May 14, 2023.<br><br> The public is invited to attend a free opening exhibit reception from 6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 at <a href="/parks/arts-culture-history/pueblo-grande" target="_blank"> Pueblo Grande Museum.​<br> </a> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/arts-culture-history/sedav-vaakiNewssedav-vaaki-museumSVM

Though the perspectives of the time now seem antiquated, the early work at Pueblo Gr​ande laid a foundation on which to build. <br><br>The location of the Museum within an archaeological site encourages partnerships between the City of Phoenix, archaeologists, and Native communities. We work together to tell the stories of Ancestral Sonoran Desert People in informative and compelling ways. Voted a Phoenix Point of Pride and listed as a National Historic Landmark, the Museum promotes preservation, education, and collaborative interpretation of the cultural history of the Phoenix area. <br><br><p><a target="_blank" href="/parks/arts-culture-history/pueblo-grande/exhibits/upcoming-exhibits">Explore this digital exhibit for more about Pueblo Grande Museum's extensive collections and history. ​</a><br></p><p><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/arts-culture-history/sedav-vaakiNewssedav-vaaki-museumSVM
