About Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians

The Kaibab Paiute Indian Reservation is located on the Arizona Strip, about 50 miles north of the Grand Canyon. Reservation lands total 120,840 acres, straddling Coconino County and Mohave County in Arizona. Elevations range from 7,058 to 4,400 feet above sea-level. The reservation spans semi-arid to alpine lands, dominated by pinyon pine and juniper, with many natural springs and several ephemeral washes that feed into the Colorado River.

The reservation hosts five tribal villages.  The non-Indian community of Moccasin, and Pipe Spring National Monument are also located entirely within the reservation boundary.

Our band does not own or operate a casino.
