In the 1970s, the Fort McDowell Reservation in Arizona came under threat by a dam construction project that, if approved, would potentially flood most of its 24,680 acres of land.

In the 1970s, the Fort McDowell Reservation in Arizona came under threat by a dam construction project that, if approved, would potentially flood most of its 24,680 acres of land. As part of the effort to preserve the reservation, Mike Harrison and John Williams, two elders of the Yavapai tribe, sought to have their history recorded as they themselves knew it, as it had been passed down to them from generation to generation, so that the history of their people would not be lost to future generations. In March 1974, Arizona State University anthropologist Sigrid Khera first sat down with Harrison and Williams to begin recording and transcribing their oral history, a project that would continue through the summer of 1976. Although Harrison and Williams have since passed away, their voices shine through the pages of this book, and the history of their people remains to be passed along and shared. Thanks to the efforts of Scottsdale resident and Orme Dam activist Carolina Butler, this important document is being made available to the public for the first time. Oral History of the Yavapai offers a wide range of information regarding the Yavapai people, from creation beliefs to interpretations of historical events and people. Harrison and Williams not only relate their perspective on the relationship between the "White people" and the Native American peoples of the Southwest, but they also share stories about prayers, songs, dreams, sacred places, and belief systems of the Yavapai. Their narration of their history facilitates a broad yet deep understanding of the Yavapai people. Little has been formally published on the Yavapai people, in particular, and this book fills that gap in literature. As such, it is a valuable addition to the literature already available regarding Native American anthropology and history, especially for students, professors, researchers, and anyone with a special interest in the American Southwest and/or Native American cultures.
