Long Description:
The Kaibab Paiute Indians operate a cultural museum in conjunction with the Ranger Station for the Pipe Spring National Monument which occupies part of their ancestral lands. From the tribal web site:

The land base of the Kaibab Indian Reservation 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.
