Generations of Apache women stand at the entrance to Oak Flat, preparing to lead the large delegation into the Oak Flat campground after the 45 mile march. At the center of the group stands Carrie "CC" Reede Curley with one of the sacred staffs. After marching into Oak Flat, she reflected upon the experience: "We did it and our ancestors welcomed us... We proved that we are strong. I couldn't explain it. Just having everyone cheering behind you, marching with you on that dirt road to the holy ground... And holding that staff, it was very empowering."
