About San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe of Arizona

The San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe of Arizona is a federally recognized tribe of Southern Paiute Indians in Coconino County, Arizona. The San Juan Southern Paiutes lived east of the Grand Canyon, in lands bounded by the San Juan and Colorado Rivers for centuries. Although they lived by the Hopi and Navajo people, the San Juan Southern Paiutes maintained their own distinct language and culture. Several of their communities were on what is now the Navajo Reservation in north Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah. The San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe of Arizona is headquartered in Tuba City, Arizona. Their primary communities are just outside Tuba City at Willow Springs, at Navajo Mountain in Arizona, and at the Utah-Arizona border.
