Homes being built in the Prescott area by members of the Yavapai Tribe. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a work program established to provide jobs and funding for the construction of homes, roads, community buildings and other structures. There was an entire division dedicated to Native Americans: the CCC-Indian Division (CCC-ID).
The history of the Yavapai Tribe has its origins in the prehistory of the southwestern portion of North America. From prehistoric times to the early 1860s, the Yavapai lived within an area covering more than 9 million acres, known today as central and western Arizona. Although there were four divisions of Yavapai, they considered themselves to be one people who spoke the same Yavapai language and shared the same beliefs and customs. They often traveled in groups made up of extended families. The men hunted with bows and arrows for deer, mountain sheep, and other game; the women and children gathered seasonal berries, seeds and fruit. The Yavapai women wove magnificent baskets, which were used for the storage of food and other items.
