Fort McDowell Orme Dam Victory Days



7] The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation celebrates the 38th Anniversary of the Orme Dam Victory Days with a celebration featuring an all-Indian rodeo, intertribal pow wow, Yavapai village and cultural performances, a carnival for individuals of all ages, parade, sports tournaments, Native American and contemporary food, arts & craft vendors and much more! 

This historic event celebrates the tribe's victory over the federal government during their battle over the proposed Orme Dam that would have flooded a majority of the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation located 35 miles northwest of Phoenix. The proposed dam would have resulted in relocation, loss to crops, livestock, burial grounds and historic sites just to name a few. 

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is a 950-member Indian tribe that call central Arizona's upper Sonoran Desert home. Located to the northwest of Phoenix within Maricopa County, Arizona, the 40 square mile reservation is a small part of the ancestral territory of the one nomadic Yavapai people, who hunted and gathered food in a vast area of Arizona's desert lowland and mountainous Mogollon Rim country.
