WE ARE HERE: ARIZONA'S FEDERALLY RECOGNIZED TRIBAL NATIONS
Arizona is fortunate to have within its borders
22 sovereign tribal nations whose people have
called this land HOME for thousands of years—
long before there was a United States and long
before there was an Arizona. After centuries
of colonization, warfare, forced removal and
dispossession, the federal government created
reservations, consisting of a small portion of
traditional tribal lands. Today, approximately 28
percent of Arizona land is tribal land.
Within the HOME exhibition that encompasses the
region of the Southwest, we have featured special
artworks made by people from the 22 federally
recognized tribal nations of Arizona. Many of those
artworks were created within recent decades,
underscoring the ringing statement, We Are Here!

NATIVE PEOPLE IN THE SOUTHWEST
THE HOPI TRIBE
Federally Recognized: 1882 The Hopi have lived continuously in northern Arizona
since 500 C.E. They are one of the oldest living cultures in
documented history; the village of Old Orayvi is the oldest
continuously inhabited village in North America. Today, Hopi
tribal lands encompass 2,410 square miles in northeastern
Arizona, with 12 villages located on three mesas. Each village
is an autonomous government, but the Hopi Tribal Council
makes laws for the tribe and sets policies to oversee tribal
business. The tribal lands are located entirely within the
Navajo Nation. Of the many ancient cultural arts of the Hopi
people—basketry, ceramics, weaving and carving—silver
jewelry is a 20th-century development. To learn more, visit

PUEBLO OF ZUNI
Federally Recognized: 1877 Traditional homelands of the A:shiwi (Zuni) stretch from
the Grand Canyon to the Rio Grande in central New Mexico.
For the past 300 years, many of the A:shiwi have lived in
the Pueblo of Zuni in New Mexico. The A:shiwi have worked
successfully since the 1960s to secure sacred ceremonial
lands, including land located in Apache County in eastern
Arizona. The A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center
presents both two- and three-dimensional arts and
defines itself as an “ecomuseum” in harmony with Zuni’s
environmental values. A:shiwi ceramics and jewelry often
express artists’ thoughts of rain and animals associated with
water. A:shiwi jewelers are known for their excellent lapidary
work. To learn more, visit http://www.ashiwi.org/Josephine Nahohai (1912-2001), Milford Nahohai (b. 1953),

THE NAVAJO NATION
Federally Recognized: 1868
The Diné (Navajo) are the largest tribal nation in the United States in land area. With 275,000 enrolled members and lands in New Mexico and Utah, in addition to Arizona, Diné Bikéyah (Navajoland) is larger than 10 of the 50 U.S. states. For more than three centuries, the Diné have lived within their four sacred mountains. In 1863, more than 10,000 Diné were forced to march from their land on the Long Walk to imprisonment by the U.S. government at Bosque Redondo in New Mexico. In 1868, a treaty with the federal government allowed the survivors to return to a much-reduced portion of their land, however still within the four sacred mountains. Among Navajo arts, textiles are best known. Navajo textiles have changed over centuries, but whether created as garments or artworks, they continue to represent the finest of textile creations. Visitors to the Navajo Nation can learn more about Diné history at several museums including the Navajo Nation Museum in Window Rock, Arizona; the Ned A. Hatathli Cultural Center at Dine College, Tsalie, Arizona; The Navajo Code Talkers Museum and the Navajo Interactive Museum both in Tuba City, Arizona.

KAIBAB BAND OF PAIUTE INDIANS
Federally Recognized: 1934
