CAROLINA CASTILLO BUTLER took an activist's path. While giving her time to house, husband and raising their four children, she was a leader in a ten-year battle, helping the Yavapai Tribe at Fort McDowell save their land. The government wanted to relocate the tribe for a dam. She was a successful leader in two county-wide elections: first, working for a "Yes" vote for the construction of useful bridges over the Salt and Agua Fria Rivers; secondly, working to defeat the $3 billion Rio Salado Project and a new property tax for it. She was a water activist, testifying numerous times to reform water policy. Her activities, along with others, are included in books such as: The Yavapai of Fort McDowell; Empires in the Sun; How to Create a Water Crisis; A Life of its Own: The Politics and Power of Water; Verde Valley Lore; Indians & Eagles. Carolina is a Mexican-American born in Arizona, and very proud that her ancestors came to Arizona from Mexico in 1864. Carolina and Walker, her husband of 46 years, live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
