Unless you have yavapai blood in you, you're not a local, either.

Well, I guess I meant native.

Ooh, more people up in this neck of the woods! Yay!
When I moved here last year, I started a vintage motorcycle group (we are a motley bunch).
(shameless plug: http://www.meetup.com/howlersvmc/ )
We discovered that most of em have dual-purpose bikes, so we've been doing more off-road the past month than on-road rides.
I was borrowing a 1984 XL600. It was fun, but now I've got my DR! Yay!

I see what you are trying to say Seabee but... even though I'm not of Yavapai Indian descent, I was born there and am defined as a Prescott native according to the following defintion. I don't however, call myself a local anymore as I no longer live there.

native

1. being the place or environment in which a person was born or a thing came into being: one's native land.

I see it now. You're a native if you're born there, and a local if you live there.

I'm slow sometimes....

Nah, not slow. Now think if you've got a Yavapai indian who wasn't born there but now lives there? Is that a Native non native local?

We were saying that in the 80's when I lived there :) and we called it Preskit
And then it was the californication in the 90's when I lived there.
and now it's just not nearly as cool as it once was with all the crappy buildings, bigger roads, and people from somewhere else trying to make it like where ever they are from. I'd still live there though

Someday, I'll give you people my full blown soap box rant about the word origination, the name, the person, the family, the history the common mispronunciations and the correct pronunciation. Then you can care even less than you do now!
In a nutshell, know that the Prescott family name comes from having lived near a priest's cottage. It is derived from the old English elements "preost," which meant "priest," and "cot," which meant "cottage" and pronounced as PRESS-scott. Since the Prescott name was chosen for the new town to honor the American historian William Hickling Prescott, he should not be disrespected by mispronouncing his name because it sounds cuter the biscuit way. If someone named a town after you, wouldn't you at least like your name pronounced correctly, consistently?
Okay, so maybe a small soap box rant. Believe me, I could write pages on this that would bore you to tears!
