In addition to the Navajo—the largest tribe—important groups are the Mohave, Apache, Hopi, Paiute, Tohono O'odham, Ak-Chin, Yuma, Yavapai, Hualapai, and Havasupai. For more information see Indians of Arizona. Histories of Arizona Indians are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under ARIZONA - MINORITIES, as well as under ARIZONA - NATIVE RACES. Other records of American Indians are listed in the Subject Search of the Family History Library Catalog under the names of the tribes.
