Kaibab Arizona

Kaibab, Arizona

In 1934, the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians was established under the Indian Reorganization Act. The tribe is governed by a seven-person tribal council which includes the chairperson, Tim Rogers, vice chairperson, Carmen Bradley, treasurer, Teyawnna Pickyaviett and four council members: Conrad Humphrey, Vivienne Jake, Gale Stanfield, and Laura Savala. The document that authorizes the tribal council as the officially recognized entity is the tribal constitution. At present, only the chairperson is an employee of the tribe, the remaining councilmen are not employed. As for the land base of the Kaibab Indian Reservation, it is approximately 121,000 acres and its northernmost border is the Arizona-Utah border. The primary purpose for the tribal government is to provide services to its tribal membership such as: healthcare, social services, substance abuse and mental health counseling, public works, judicial services, housing assistance, natural resources and employment opportunities.

In the recent past, the tribe has computerized its accounting system and has constructed a new tribal affairs/community services building. Now, the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians is at a point where one of the primary goals is to create economic development on tribal lands while protecting natural resources.

The Kaibab Paiute Indian Reservation is located on the Arizona Strip, about 50 miles north of the Grand Canyon. Reservation lands total 120,840 acres, straddling Coconino County and Mohave County in Arizona. Elevations range from 7,058 to 4,400 feet above sea-level. The reservation spans semi-arid to alpine lands, dominated by pinyon pine and juniper, with many natural springs and several ephemeral washes that feed into the Colorado River.

The reservation hosts five tribal villages. The non-Indian community of Moccasin, and Pipe Spring National Monument are also located entirely within the reservation boundary.

Our band does not own or operate a casino.
