The Nation Today

Today there about 2,500 enrolled tribal members with about 750 living in the five tribal communities of Middle Verde, Camp Verde, Rimrock, Clarkdale and Tunlii.


The Nation provides employment to the surrounding communities through Cliff Castle Casino, Distant Drums RV Park, Sonic Drive-in, Chevron Gas and Convenience Store, Yavapai-Apache Sand & Rock, and Yavapai-Apache Construction. The Nation supports many organizations including Boys & Girls Club, Toys for Tots, American Red Cross, United Way, youth programs, schools and scholarship funds.


The Casino revenue provides tribal members with health care, services for elders, and opportunities for youth with college education available for all. The Nation operates its own Police, Fire and Emergency Services, and departments of Public Works, Land & Water, Housing, and a Cultural Resource Center.‚Äč
