Population Served

The Cocopah and Quechan are the two distinct tribes that are served at Fort Yuma. The Quechan Reservation consists of 45,814 desert acres along the Colorado River in California's Imperial County, just outside Yuma. The Cocopah Reservation is comprised of 1,772 acres near Somerton, AZ, a small town south-west of Yuma. The Cocopah and Quechan tribal members live a contemporary lifestyle but many still practice traditional ways. The cultural experiences run deep here. Even the native language bears linguistic similarities to the ancient Aztecs.
