This is another case of it being a reservation that existed historically. Rather than deleting the page, it should be adjusted. The following is taken from a description of its historical existence as indicated in the web site for Glendale, Arizona.
The Gila Bend Indian Reservation was one of three reservations creating the Tohono O’odham Nation (formerly referred to as the Papago Indian Tribe of Arizona) that was established by Executive Orders dated December 12, 1882 and June 17, 1909. It was designated the San Lucy District. The reservation consisted of 10,297 acres that was divided by the Gila River. The following dates are relevant to the issue of the Tribe’s proposal to create a reservation in Glendale.Jimmy B. Parker 01:48, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
