36th Recognition Day Event

32nd Tribal Recognition

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe would like to thank all who came to visit us during our recognition events.


Constitutional Amendment Project

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is working on a project to present changes to the Tribe’s Constitution to the voters—the Pascua Yaqui People. The Tribal Council can ask the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to hold an election to change the Constitution, but it’s up to YOU- the voter to vote for important constitutional changes.
