Sikul Himatk is a populated place situated in Pima County, Arizona.[2] Between 1893 and 1912 the location was known as Vaheja. Historically it has also been called Siclehema, Sikulhamakt, Sikulhamatk, and Sikulhimat. It officially became known as Sikul Himatk, which is O'odham meaning "water going around", due to it being situated between two watersheds, in 1941 as a result of a decision by the Board on Geographic Names. It has an estimated elevation of 2,155 feet (657 m) above sea level.[1]
