Mojave Nation

The Mojave people are a Native American tribe that have traditionally inhabited the Mojave Desert in what is now southeastern California and southern Nevada, as well as parts of Arizona and Utah. The Mojave people have a long and rich history, dating back thousands of years.

They have traditionally been a desert-dwelling people, living off the land through hunting, gathering, and farming. They also have a strong spiritual tradition, and have been known for their intricate basket weaving and pottery.

In the 19th century, the Mojave people were forcibly removed from their ancestral lands by the U.S. government and moved to reservations. Many were forced to work on the railroads and in mines.

Despite these hardships, the Mojave people have managed to maintain their cultural identity and traditions. Today, the Mojave people continue to live on the Fort Mojave Indian Reservation, which straddles the border of California, Arizona, and Nevada.
