The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, formerly the Fort McDowell Mohave-Apache Community of the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation), is a federally recognized tribe and Indian reservation in Maricopa County, Arizona about 23 miles (37 km) northeast of Phoenix, currently encompassing only 24,680 acres (100 km2) out of the much larger area that was originally Yavapai territory. The reservation was originally established in 1890 and is now home to approximately 971 people, mostly Yavapai. The outside communities of Fountain Hills and Rio Verde lie adjacent to the reservation, as does the Salt River Indian Reservation.
