Yavapai farms on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation at San Carlos, Arizona.  In 1875, the Yavapai were forcibly marched to the San Carlos Indian Reservation, across 180 miles of rough terrain, which the Yavapai call The March of Tears.

The Yavapai's rich history dates back centuries, when the women wove intricate baskets and the men were largely hunters and gatherers. The tribe’s first chief was Sam Jimulla, succeeded by his wife Viola. She was the first woman chieftess among North American Indians. There are three primary groups of Yavapai existing today - they are located at Fort McDowell, Camp Verde and Prescott.  The Yavapai-Prescott Indian Reservation consists of approximately 1,400 acres that are adjacent to the city of Prescott, Arizona in central Yavapai County. When it was established in 1935, the Yavapai Prescott Indian Reservation occupied only 75 acres of the former Fort Whipple Military Reserve in central Arizona. The first reservation established solely for the Yavapai, it continued to grow with the 1956 addition of 1,320 acres.
