Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation
The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is a 950-member Native American tribe which calls Central Arizona’s upper Sonoran Desert home. The tribe which once roamed over 12 million acres now owns just 24,000 acres in northeastern Maricopa County 35 miles from Phoenix. The Fort Mc Dowell Yavapai, the “Abaja - the people” are one of three Yavapai tribes in Arizona. The Yavapai are among the Yuman-speaking peoples, which also include the Hualapai, Havasupai, Kumeyaay, Pai Pai, Cocopah and other Southwestern tribes. The Yavapai have lived and worked in Central Arizona for thousands of years.
The nation owns and operates a number of businesses including the Fort McDowell Casino, Fort McDowell Adventures (a Western-themed outdoor venue), Eagle’s Nest RV Park, WeKoPa Golf Club, Fort McDowell Farms, Yavapai Materials and the Radisson Poco Diablo Resort in Sedona.
The Yavapai people welcome respectful visitors to their beautiful lands!
