  • Title: Yavapai-Apache Nation Culture
    Descriptive info: Exodus.. Click on Image to.. View Larger Version.. Headquartered in Camp Verde, Arizona, the Yavapai-Apache Nation, a federally recognized Indian Nation, proudly proclaims success in surviving the removal of their people from their ancestral homelands in 1875 and their subsequent return beginning in the early 1900 s.. On February 27, 1875, the United States Army, acting on an Executive Order from the President, transferred an estimated 1,500 Wipukyipai (Yavapai) and Dil zhe e (Apache) people from the Rio Verde Indian Reservation 180 miles away to the Indian Agency at San Carlos, Arizona.. Rather than use the wagon roads that could be used to transport the sick and elderly, along with supplies, the Yavapai and Apache people were forced to march, under duress, through winter flooded rivers, mountainous terrain and harsh weather.. The arduous journey resulted in hundreds of lives lost, as the people were swept downriver or suffered illnesses from the harsh conditions.. The forced removal of the indigenous people also resulted in the loss of several thousand acres of treaty lands promised to the Yavapai and Apache by the United States government.. Return.. When released from internment, 25 years after being forcibly removed from their homelands, approximately 200 Yavapai and Apache returned to the Verde Valley under the assumption that the land they had been promised remained theirs.. What they found upon their return was that their land was taken over by Anglo settlers and that there was no longer a place reserved for the Yavapai and Apache people.. Despite the many hostilities they faced, the Yavapai and Apache  ...   its members.. Today, members receive enhanced services that include:.. Medical Dental, Eye, Nutrition, Physician Services, Wellness.. Social Services Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling, Child Protective Services, Elder Advocacy, Emergency Assistance.. Judicial Police Department, Tribal Court - Family Health Court, Adult Drug Court, Mental Health Court, Probation Department.. Youth Services Recreation Program, Fitness Programs.. Education Scholarship Program, Tutor, Clothing Allowance.. Housing Low Income Tax Credit, 184 Loans, Tribal Rentals.. While partially funded by gaming revenue, the enhanced services are a result of forward thinking business acumen by former and current tribal administrations.. Beyond Cliff Castle Casino, the Yavapai-Apache Nation owns and operates Yavapai-Apache Sand and Rock, Distant Drums RV Park, Yavapai-Apache Construction and Whitehills Mobile Convenience Store.. With one of the most diverse economic markets in the Verde Valley, the Nation provides employment and other economic benefits to the surrounding communities on a daily basis.. In addition, the Nation supports many organizations including the Boys and Girls Club, Toys for Tots, the local schools, and much more.. Exodus Commemoration.. Each year in February, the Nation the Yavapai and Apache People s forced removal and successful return to the Verde Valley, hosting a day long event that includes a spiritual blessing at sunrise, a commemorative walk/run, traditional dancing, and food.. The Nation welcomes everyone to join them at the annual Exodus Commemoration in February when they will commemorate those who were forcefully removed from their homelands and celebrate the successful return of the Yavapai and Apache People to the Verde Valley..

During the breakfast Chairman Beauty stated to tribal leaders, Indian gaming has elevated our communities to self-sufficiency, but as Indian people, we are a giving people, and we have not only used gaming dollars to develop our tribal communities and educate our people, we have also contributed just under $1 billion to the State of Arizona, supporting Arizonans education, healthcare and natural resources.. Tribal leaders also heard remarks and presentation from Tom Tyree, President of the State of Arizona Board of Education and Eileen Klein, President of the State of Arizona Board of Regents, at which time both referenced their respected boards accomplishments in education in Arizona and their efforts for education of Arizona tribal communities..

Tribal Legislative Day is an opportunity for Arizona tribal leaders to cooperatively work with our Arizona legislature, discuss issues and have a strong presence at the legislature..

The Tribal Nation s Day event was launched in 2008 when President Obama committed to increasing discussion and dialogue with tribal nations on key issues and matters that directly impact Indian community.. The Tribal Nation s Day event was very beneficial for the Nation.. Prioritizing the Nation s federal issues such as water also takes into consideration the priorities of the U..

Following the Tribal Nation s event, Chairman Beauty and Vice Chairwoman Darlene Rubio met with Congressional leader s discussing key issues for the Nation..

Our goal is to bring everyone back to the table for discussion and negotiation and do the right thing, which is secure our federal water rights, which is the life of our Yavapai and Apache people.. Our meetings were productive and we made progress in advocating the support from the Arizona Congressional delegation for the Nation s desire for a federal water settlement.. Vice Chairwoman Rubio said, Water is the life of our Nation.. Advocating and discussing the Nation s priority for settlement will be reflected in the Nation s longevity for economic development, housing, agriculture and prosperity.. Our work in D.. not only directly impacts tribal members today, but will impact the quality of life of tribal members for generations to come.. The Nation has faced recent challenges in negotiating its federal water rights, which required the Nation to work with the Department of Interior to resolve the negotiation challenges in order to move forward with settlement and further discussion with the Federal Water Rights Negotiation Team.. Meeting with Congressional leaders is an important component of the government-to-government relationship between the Nation and federal agencies.. The government-to-government relationship is part of the federal trust responsibility obligated to tribal communities.. Additionally, the meetings were a critical opportunity for Tribal Leaders to advocate for water, land, Indian gaming and other issues that the Nation needs to develop a sustainable future.. While meeting with Congressional leaders, the San Carlos Apache Tribe announced a major victory for Apache tribes in Arizona, with HR-687 The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act lacking support in the U.. House of Representatives and forcing Congressman Paul Gosar to the pull the bill from the House floor for vote.. HR-687 would desecrate the Oak Flats site near the San Carlos Apache Tribe, which has been identified as a sacred site.. Since the inception of discussion on HR-687, Arizona Apache Tribes have collectively submitted comment and the position that Oak Flats and the regard to Apache culture should be a priority as opposed to the desecration of the sacred site to generate jobs in Southeast Arizona.. Apache elders from our Arizona Apache tribes and our Apache people in general have advocated for the preservation of Oak Flats.. This issue has been a discussion issue for years.. The strength of our Apache people and the strong leadership is reflected in HR-687 lacking the support for votes on the House floor, and reaffirms that tribes have a very strong voice in policy making.. Congratulations to the San Carlos  ...   to further develop its economy and long-term vision, which will be determined by Tribal Leaders.. The next Administration will be responsible for diversifying the economy and progressing the Nation while meeting the service needs of tribal members..
