The current boundaries of the Fort McDowell Reservation mark only a small portion of the ancestral territory of the bands of Yavapais whose homeland was the vast area called Arizona and the Mogollon Rim country. These people hunted wild animals and gathered food. It is likely they refreshed themselves at Montezuma Well as history indicates that the Yavapai's early origin is Ahagaskiaywa (Montezuma Well).

Located in Maricopa County, the Fort McDowell Reservation lies approximately 23 miles northeast of Phoenix. The community?s economy is closely tied to the surrounding communities of Rio Verde, Fountain Hills, Mesa, Scottsdale and Phoenix. Large employers include the Fort McDowell Gaming Center, the tribal farm, and a sand and gravel operation, and a tribally-owned gas station.
