The We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center is located on the grounds of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. This Native American tribe has lived in Central Arizona's Sonoran Desert and mountainous, Mogollon Rim area for thousands of years.

Today, Yavapai Nation owns 24,000 acres in Maricopa County, which pales in comparison to the 12 million acres the tribe once roamed as nomadic hunters and gatherers.

A 40 square-mile reservation was established for the Yavapai in 1903 and 600 of the tribe's more than 900 members now call the reservation home. Yavapai Nation strives to preserve its traditions and values, all while keeping up with its members' changing needs in our evolving society. The Yavapai Tribe owns and operates several successful businesses in addition to the We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center, including Eagle View RV Resort, We-Ko-Pa Golf Club and Poco Diablo Resort.
