Father Kino wanted a good place to settle:
A place near water, like the Santa Cruz River.

Listen close — the sound of water and animals
in a region then known as the Pimería Alta.

The Fathers followed the trading routes of the
Tohono O’odham, where they worked together,

often roaming hundreds of miles
sleeping by the rivers, purifying their ears.
