Yavapai Apache Tribe

"Yavapai Apache" is the name of a Native American nation of Arizona. The Yavapai Apache Nation is a mixed community, with tribal members from two culturally and linguistically different Southwest Indian cultures: the Yavapai (speakers of a Yuman language) and the Tonto Apache (speakers of a Western Apache dialect.) Though these neighboring bands traditionally had generally harmonious relations, frequently trading with each other and occasionally allying against other tribes, they were always politically distinct until 1934, when the federal government regrouped them into a single nation.
