SOUTHEAST DESERT
Pascua Yaqui Indian Reservation

The Pascua Yaqui Indian Reservation is surrounded by a variety of scenic drives and trails. Located 15 miles southwest of Tucson the reservation is convenient to Mt. Lemmon ski facilities, Saguaro National Monument, San Xavier delBac Mission, Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum and other popular destinations in the area.

Not recognized as an historic tribe until 1994, the Yaqui Indians have faced a long battle for recognition. The tribe is descended from ancient Uto-Azteca people.

The tribe operates Casino of the Sun.

Major events held:


    Tribal Recognition Day (September 18)
    Easter Ceremonial during Holy Week

The tribe is noted for cultural paintings done by children and Deer Dance statues.
