main portion of the reservation, consisting of 993,083 acres, is located
in northern Arizona, approximately 110 miles west of Flagstaff, and 55
miles northeast of Kingman, Arizona. The reservation is adjacent to the
Colorado River at Lower Granite Gorge. This "U" shaped parcel is
approximately sixty miles wide, and is bordered on the north by the
Grand Canyon National Park
and by the
Grand Wash Cliffs
on the west.
Occupying part of
three Arizona counties, Coconino, Yavapai and Mohave, the main
reservation's topography varies from rolling grassland and forests to
rugged canyons of the Colorado River. Elevations range from 1,500 feet
at the Colorado River, to over 7,300 feet at the highest point of the
Aubrey Cliffs, located on the eastern portion of the reservation.

an important surface water feature of the main reservation, as
groundwater resources on the reservation tend to be less accessible.
Wells tapping the principal water-bearing formation range from 400 to
over 1,000 feet in depth. Water yields range from less than 10 gallons
per minute to over 100 gallons per minute.

parcel of tribal land is located in Truckee, California. This gifted
fee land covers 203.1 acres.
