Native American Water Rights in Arizona


The cooperative Western Waters Digital Library Project has been established to make available documents relating to the West's conflicts and compromises over water. As part of this project, the University of Arizona Library is making available on the Web government documents relating to the water rights of Native American tribes in Arizona.

Currently, we offer federal government documents up through 1990 which pertain to the water rights of the Navajo, Hopi and Pima tribes in Arizona. The web site will eventually include other tribes, and state and local documents as well.

Documents are arranged by tribe. Items are listed chronologically within each grouping.

We hope that this project is useful to the general public and to researchers. Please send us your comments using the "Comments link, being sure to reference the "water rights" project.
