Pascua Yaqui Tribe Receives Heritage Preservation Grant

Pascua Yaqui Tribe

In June 2019, the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Historic Preservation Office was recognized by the U.S. National Park Service, allowing the Tribe to take over historic preservation responsibilities from the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office.

The Tribe received a Tribal Heritage Grant from the Historic Preservation Fund, to support the Tribal Historic Preservation Office efforts. Over the next two years this $50,000 grant will be used to consult with knowledge holders in each of the Yaqui communities in Arizona and to engage archaeological and architectural historian consultants to identify and document Yaqui places of historical and cultural importance in Arizona.
