Pascua Yaqui Tribe

The Pascua Yaqui Indians of Arizona are descendants of the ancient Toltecs who occupied a large area of the Southwest and Mexico and today have eight communities in Southern Arizona.

1) New Pascua Village, which is the Yaqui reservation, outside of Tucson
2) Guadalupe, outside of Phoenix
3) Old Pascua Village, located in Tucson
4) Barrio Libre, in the City of South Tucson
5) Yoemem Pueblo, in Marana
6) Penjamo, located in Scottsdale
7) Hightown, located in Chandler
8) Coolidge

The Pascua Yaqui tribe culture is rich in Native Indian elements and is best known for its Deer Dances and statuary and cultural paintings done by Yaqui artists.
             
The reservation is surrounded by richly vegetated, scenic desert that offers recreational and sightseeing opportunities.  The Mt. Lemmon ski area is an hour east of Tucson, and Saguaro National Monument is a few miles north.  Other sights include the San Xavier del Bac Mission, Old Tucson Studios, Sonoran Desert Museum, and Kitt Peak Observatory.  The nearby Santa Catalina, Tucson, and Rincon Mountains provide hiking and camping opportunities.
