"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 around 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).
