Yavapai Apache Nation
The Yavapai-Apache Nation is a sovereign Native American tribe from the Sedona Verde Valley. The Yavapai-Apache Tribal Administration Complex, Tribal Court, Council Chambers, and Cliff Castle Casino are located on the reservation in Camp Verde, about 90 miles north of Phoenix and 40 miles south of Flagstaff, along Interstate 17. The reservation spans 665 acres in the four communities of Camp Verde, Middle Verde, Clarkdale and Rimrock.
Sedona sits about 100 miles south of one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon. Despite the small town charm of Sedona, Red Rock Country is surprisingly large, as it is surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest land and buttressed by four wilderness areas and two state parks. There’s so much more to see if you only know where to look. A wild country of mountains and mesas and sprawling valleys is spread beneath blue skies and an endless supply of sunshine. This is a land held sacred by Native Americans and where cowboys once rode. Red stone formations create a haunting skyline found nowhere else in the world. This is where Arizona keeps the Old West. And this is where a New West has evolved, as a haven for artists, a center of spiritual health and enlightenment, and an epic playground for outdoor enthusiasts.
