DISCOVER SALT RIVER
The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community invites you to experience their heritage of hospitality. Located just 20 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Salt River is neighbored by the cities of Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, and Fountain Hills.
With two distinct backgrounds and cultures, the Community is comprised of two Native American tribes: the “Akimel O’Odham” (River People) and the “Xalychidom Piipaash” (People who live toward the water), also known as the Pima and Maricopa. Both tribes are distinctive in their traditional ways but share the same cultural values.
Today, Salt River maintains its cultural ties to the land and continues to thrive with the development of many enterprises and partnerships, including Talking Stick Resort™.
