VISITOR INFORMATION

WHO WE ARE

We are a people who inhabit the Sonoran Desert in southwestern Arizona and northern Sonora, Mexico. Our Nation’s lands cover almost 3,000,000 acres. Before European contact, our people traveled extensively throughout Arizona and Mexico hunting and gathering food, trading with neighbors, and visiting family.

We are a people whose cultural values – our himdag – include respect for our land, respect for our elders, sharing with others, and hard work. We are a people whose origin stories tell us that we were created by Elder Brother and placed here. Archaeological evidence from Ventana Cave shows that our people were living here at least 10,000 years ago.
