This Amor-type object, recovered with the Steward Observatory’s 2.3-m reflector on Kitt Peak in 1976, is named in honor of the Papago Indian Tribe, which made available the land on which the AURA observatories are based. Baboquivari, located a few kilometers south of Kitt Peak, is the highest and most sacred peak in Papago country. It figures prominently in Papago mythology as the home of the culture hero I’itoi. Name proposed by F. K. Edmondson.
