The Gila River Indian Community is nestled beneath a beautiful blue desert sky, amid breath-taking sunrises and warm golden sunsets, live The River People. This lush desert environment with its abundant wildlife of wild horses, cottontail rabbits, quail, roadrunners, and morning dove, makes living here very precious.
The Sonoran Desert has been home to two distinct tribes – the Akimel O’odham (Pima), and Pee-Posh (Maricopa) people since time in memorial. The natural elements of our environment have been embraced by incorporating them into our artwork, pottery, baskets, and jewelry. Our new buildings also feature symbolic designs, natural materials, and plants which reflect our affection for the land.
