In 2009 Standing Fox, Wendsler Nosie Sr. and several other prominent Apache activists and artists established the memorial to their ancestors on the ground of Old San Carlos. Lead by Rolling Fox, Anthony Matonth Logan, an elder religious practitioner, the activists gather at Old San Carlos to pray before their journey to Oak Flat. This is the first time they've allowed outsiders to photograph their ceremonial Holy Ground songs. Off camera are the tribe's sacred Four Crosses, which we were asked not to photograph.
