The Tohono O'odham are a group of Native American people who reside primarily in the
Sonoran Desert of the southeastern Arizona and northwest Mexico. "Tohono
O'odham" means "Desert People." Although they were previously known as
the Papago, they have largely rejected this name (meaning literally "tepary-bean
eater"), which was applied to them by conquistadores, who had heard them called this
by other Piman bands who are very competitive with the Tohono O'odham. The term Papago
derives from Ba:bawi(ko?a, meaning "eating tepary beans", which was pronounced
Papago by the Spanish.
A United States reservation residing on a portion of its people's original Sonoran
desert lands, the Tohono O'odham Nation within the United States is organized into 11
districts. The land lies in three counties of the state of Arizona: Pima County, Pinal
County, and Maricopa County. The main reservation is located between Tucson and Ajo,
Arizona, with its administrative center in the town of Sells. A few of the districts are
not contiguous with the main reservation: The San Xavier District southwest of Tucson, the
San Lucy District near the city of Gila Bend, and the Florence Village near the city of
Florence. The reservation's land area is 11,534.012 square kilometres (4,453.307 sq
mi), the third-largest Indian reservation area in the United States (after the Navajo and
the Uintah and Ouray). The 2000 census reported 10,787 people living on reservation land.
The tribe's enrollment office tallies a population of 25,000, with 20,000 living on
its Arizona reservation lands.
