About the D.O.C. Patch

[PHOTO - DOC Patch]

At the center of our patch is The Great Seal of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. This ancient pattern of the Southern Arizona tribes represents the MAZE, or house of "Se-eh-ha" (Elder Brother).

The legend of the "Man in the Maze" helps children understand the meaning of life. The maze depicts experiences and choices we make in our journey through life. It illustrates the search for balance – physical, social, mental and spiritual. In the middle of the maze are found a person's dreams and goals. Legend says when we reach the center, the Sun God is there to greet us, bless us and pass us into the next world.
