Welcome to the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is a 950-member Native American tribe that calls Central Arizona’s upper Sonoran Desert home. Located to the northeast of Phoenix within Maricopa County, Arizona, the 40-square mile reservation is a small part of the ancestral territory of the once nomadic Yavapai people, who hunted and gathered food in a vast area of Arizona’s desert lowlands and mountainous Mogollon Rim country.

We are determined to be the leader among indigenous communities guided by the Sovereignty and grounded in Yavapai Tradition and Culture. We strive to improve the health, well being and happiness of our nation.
