San Cosme del Tucson 

When Father Eusebio Kino arrived in the 1690s he referenced a Sobaipuri O'odham village called Cuk Ṣon. This is the O'odham name that eventually changed to the word Tucson. Remnants of this native village still exist and have been documented. Its location differs from that indicated by many historians and archaeologists. Yet, the original documents and the archaeological record strongly support the identification of this site as the original place.
