The Arizona Cardinals may have wrapped up the regular season but the Gila River Indian Community will always be high on their depth chart. Going into their final regular season game on Jan.3, the Cardinals honored GRIC with a pregame visit to the field and a video presentation. Haskell-Osife Antone Post 51 was also on the field for the presenting of the colors.
“We are proud to have a long lasting relationship with the Arizona Cardinals. Through this partnership, we are able to tell our story of the Akimel O’otham and Pee-Posh people,” said Gov. Stephen Roe Lewis.
Gov. Lewis said the Cardinals’ level of community outreach is a huge part of the partnership that doesn’t end at the stadium, but has a deeper commitment.
