Yavapai – pronounced yav • uh • pie

Our Tribe and our ancestors have lived in central and western Arizona for centuries. Today, the Tribe consists of 159 members and occupies a reservation of less than 1,500 acres. Roaming the deserts of the southwest, the Yavapai people are known for their exceptional baskets. Our flag features a unique and historic basket design.
