The City of Phoenix’s website notes:
Hundreds of years before any of the cities in the eastern part of our country
were so much as clearings in the wilderness, a well-established, civilized
community occupied the land we know as Phoenix. The Pueblo
Grande ruins, which were occupied between 700 A.D. and 1400 A.D., testify
to our city’s ancient roots.
The wide Salt River ran through the Valley of the Sun, but there was little
rain and no melting snow to moisten the brown earth from river to mountain
range on either side.
Those former residents were industrious, enterprising and imaginative.
They built an irrigation system, consisting mostly of some 135 miles of
canals, and the land became fertile. The ultimate fate of this ancient society,
however, is a mystery. The accepted belief is that it was destroyed by
a prolonged drought. Roving Indians, observing the Pueblo Grande ruins
and the vast canal system these people left behind, gave them the name
“Ho Ho Kam” — the people who have gone.
Phoenix’s modern history begins in the second half of the 19th century. …
Phillip Darrell Duppa an eccentric founder of Phoenix … suggested the
name Phoenix, inasmuch as the new town would spring from the ruins
of a former civilization. That is the accepted derivation of our name.
In Hambaugh v. Peoples, 401 P.2d 777 (1965), the Supreme Court of New Mexico
noted that “cases disposed of on technicalities of pleading, and not on
their merits, have a way of rising Phoenix-like from their ashes, to again
harass the alleged miscreants”.
Those who are wondering what a Donald J. Trump Presidential Library
might look like should go no further than <www.djtrumplibrary.com>. In
fact, they should not even go there.
In Colorado Environmental Coalition v. Salazar, Civil Action No. 09-cv-00085-
JLK, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado noted that “like a
phoenix rising from the ashes, … the specter of oil shale development in the
American West refuses to die”.
