In a time before central air conditioning, before the casino, and when most of the region was farmland instead of tract housing, Robert Miguel of the Ak-Chin Indian Community grew up with many of the homes still being adobe, houses built out of sticks and mud.
Miguel’s mother Janice was a teenager when she had him. His grandparents Jonas and Matilda Miguel were his primary caretakers and main influence in his childhood. His grandfather also was the Chairman of the Tribe.
