A-Z: KAIBAB INDIAN RESERVATION



From November of 2004 to July 2012 I worked for the Kaibab Paiute Indian Tribe as their Water Quality Specialist.  It seems like a lot of time in the US that the Indian Tribes got some of the most useless land when it came to establishing reservations, but not in the case of Kaibab.  They have over 120,000 acres of beautiful land in northern Arizona.  I feel very fortunate that I got to work there, and had the opportunity to see the areas that some tribal members haven't even been to.  To learn more about the Kaibab Paiute Tribe visit their website.

Every year they host a powwow the third weekend of August that is free to the public.

  5. Arizona is beautiful, but I wonder how people really hold up during the summer. Then again, we adapt to our surroundings, right?
