James S. Griffith retired in March 1998 as coordinator of the University of Arizona's Southwest Folklore Center and subsequently became a research associate at the Southwest Studies Center of the University of Arizona. He has published extensively on the folklore, folklife, and folk arts of the various peoples of southern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico.The Yaquis ("the people" in their own language) are of Uto-Aztecan language stock. Most of the 5,000 or more Yaquis in Arizona are descended from refugees who fled their homeland in Sonora, Mexico, around the turn of the century when the government of Porfirio Diaz attempted to free up Yaqui lands for large-scale agriculture by killing or deporting the inhabitants. Large numbers of Yaquis fled across the border into Arizona at that time; their descendants eventually came to occupy four communities in the Tucson area and one in the town of Guadalupe, near Phoenix.
