The Cocopah Indian Reservation is a federally-recognized reservation, located just south of Yuma, Arizona and is comprised of three non-contiguous bodies of land known as the North, West and East Reservations. The Reservation was established by Executive Order No. 2711, signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1917. In 1985, the Cocopah Tribe acquired an additional 4,200 acres, including the North Reservation, through the Cocopah Land Acquisition Bill signed by President Ronald Reagan. Today, the East, West and North Reservations comprise over 6,500 acres. Much of the Reservation land is leased as agricultural land to non-Indian farmers.
