Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation
"Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation" is the name of a Native American nation of Arizona.
Previously, it was known as the "Fort McDowell Mohave-Apache Community," but this
is a case of mistaken identity-- though there are some Apache families living on the Fort McDowell
reservation, there have never been any Mohaves. The people who were originally mistaken for
Mohaves are actually Yavapais, who make up the great majority of the tribe's citizens.
