"STRAIGHT TALK FOR REAL PEOPLE"
Welcome to Salt River News (SRN). This site is dedicated to inform (as much as possible) community members of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) of the issues and activities that affect the tribal membership.
The Community is located just east of Phoenix. We are over 10,000 strong in membership. The Community consists of two tribes Akimel O'Odham, or Pima (River People) and Xalychidom Piipaash, or Maricopa (People who live towards the water).

"At its core 'tribal sovereignty' incorporates the concept of freedom - it's about American Indians' ability and consciously participation in the creation of their own future.”
