CESTAVAILABLECflfY B6 Arizona Daily Star Monday, January 28, 2002 o Cherokee leader spotlights UA event Mankiller emerged from humble roots By Carmen Duarte ARIZONA DAILY STAR Wilma Mankiller has a tough name, and that name helped shape her into a strong person in 1985 she became the first woman to lead the Cherokee Nation. "My father was a person who always told us to be proud of our name. It's an unusual name. Growing up we were teased about it," said Mankiller, who will kick off the 20th anniversary celebration of the University of Arizona's American Indian Studies Program this evening. She will open the "Poetics and Politics" speaker series at 7:30 in the Social Sciences Auditorium, Room 100. The event is free and open to the public. In 1985, Mankiller was appointed chief of the Cherokee Nation and elected to that post two years later, serving until 1995. Under her leadership, education and health care became priorities. Before she was voted the top leader, Mankiller worked as the tribe's community development director in charge of building water systems and renovating houses. She also held the post of deputy principal chief of the Cherokee Nation the second in command. She sees the protection of treaty rights and sovereignty as key issues facing American Indian tribes. "Equally important is trying in the 21st century to fully understand practical ways to keep traditional life ways and still interact with the world around us," Mankiller' said. "We must preserve our art, language, music and ceremonies. "I see more youth interested in this preservation. I'm pretty optimistic," said Mankiller, who also will discuss tonight the role of women in shaping the family, community and tribe. In a telephone interview from her Cherokee Nation home in Adair County, Okla., the 56-year-old author and consultant talked about the strength she and her 10 siblings received from her parents, Irene Sitton CITY PAY Keene announced plans to eliminate 100 jobs next year Continued from Page Bl plan for next year requires cutting $7 million from this year's budget, Keene said, and the $1 million saved from delaying the raises would be a big step in that direction. The manager announced previously that he intends to eliminate 100 jobs next year and that he's trying to do it without layoffs. He said giving raises would make that task more difficult.

Officers went to Moody's cell and found he had barricaded himself inside by wedging paper between the cell door and door-jamb. They forced their way inside and found Moody bleeding from the self-inflicted wounds, Easton said. After corrections officers and Tucson Fire Department paramedics treated Moody, he was taken to University Medical Center for observation. Easton said Moody was never in danger of dying from the wounds.

"My father's teachings had an impact on us to be proud of our rich Cherokee history," said Mankiller, whose name is derived from a military title given to the protector of the village. "My mother gave us unconditional love and always was in our corner, even if we were dead wrong," Mankiller said. "She let us develop in our own way. She let us find our own path." Mankiller returned to her homelands in the mid-1970s a move that made her feel complete. "I grew up in San Francisco after moving there with my family when I was 10 years old," she said. "We moved under a BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) relocation program because they wanted us to assimilate. My father thought we'd have a better life. We grew up in Hunters Point a housing project," she said. give raises now, and then turn around and have to lay people off in a few months," he said. "I'm committed to giving our employees fair compensation," Keene said, "but the reality is there's only so much money." Police officers and firefighters, who got larger raises than those given to other city workers, weren't scheduled to get the equity raises until July. Keene indicated he will include $6 million in next year's budget for raises to cover a full year when all the employees are eligible. Linda Bohlke, field representative for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents blue-collar workers, said the union isn't happy with the delay or with the city study. slayings. He told psychologists the aliens wanted him to be executed so he could be revived by alien powers, proving alien existence to humans. Moody During his trial in April 1995, Moody demanded that his attorney withdraw from the case for planning to use the insanity defense instead of arguing that aliens were responsible for the killings. After that, Moody represented himself, and he was convicted and sentenced to death on March 30, 1996. The Arizona Supreme Court later ruled that Moody should have been allowed a new attorney and overturned the verdict, giving Moody a new trial. Moody was again found guilty of first-degree murder in May 2001. Moody is to be sentenced today at a hearing at 10:30 a.m. be havioral health technician, Jan. 16, Swan Funeral Home.

Charlie Soap "We're never happy when they delay a raise. None of the employees are happy," she said. She said the union disagrees with the study because "it fails to recognize the skills and training of blue-collar workers and the work conditions and hazards they face." Bohlke said the city study is also tilted to favor public safety workers and top executives. Pay scales for blue-collar and white-collar workers are based on the rates paid by other gov-" ernments in Pima County, which is known as a low-wage area, she said. But public safety pay scales are indexed to what those jobs pay in Phoenix and other Maricopa County cities, she said, while the rates for upper management are based on the na fore Superior Court Judge Michael Cruikshank. Dan Benavidez, spokesman for the Pima County Attorney's Office, said the decision to proceed with the sentencing will be up to the judge. i Contact Adam Borowitz at 629-9412 or by e-mail at Btck fervrJ Stop Pfr Hon 1 Autofll Ptnt V- fS2II! jI"htTp7 v1'j i wraMramrw - . r .

I realize now that they gave us a real gift," she said. She grew up in a household where her mother tended to the family, while her father worked various jobs, including as a longshoreman and as a shop steward for the Teamsters. He died in 1971 from kidney disease. . As she grew older, Mankiller said, she became more independent, finding her own path. She said she remained close to American Indian communities and took part in dozens of causes.
