Pacer Reina, of the Community Relations department, and Emily
Chiago King, of Administration, are the “face”
and “voice” for two waters. They will help keep
Community members and employees informed as the project progresses.
Pacer Reina, Two Waters Spokesperson
Pacer has been with the Community Relations department for
ten years and worked with the SRPMIC for eleven years. Born
in Phoenix in 1970, he is married and the father of five children,
ages 11 to five months. “I was born in Phoenix but moved
back to the Community when I was eight years old,” said
Reina whose grandmother’s grandfather was Antonito Azul,
the last chief of the Au-Authm. Educated in the Mesa Public
School system, Reina graduated in 1988 from high school and
enlisted in the U.S. Army to become a para-trouper. He was
assigned to the famed 82nd Airborne Division.

new tribal offices, administration and government complex
is a great idea. It will be wonderful to house so many different
departments in one area,” she said, adding that her
only concern is that the disabled and Elders will have to
get used to the much larger offices.
