The Hopi Reservation, in northeastern Arizona, occupies part of Navajo and Coconino counties and encompasses approximately 1,542,306 acres. The Hopi Reservation is entirely surrounded by the Navajo Nation Reservation.
The Hopi people trace their history in Arizona to more than 2,000 years, but their history as a people goes back many more thousands of years. According to their legends, the Hopi migrated north to Arizona from the south, up from what is now South America, Central America and Mexico.
The tribe’s teachings relate stories of a great flood and other events dating to ancient times, marking the Hopi as one of the oldest living cultures in documented history. A deeply religious people, they live by the ethic of peace and goodwill.
The mission of the Hopi Partnership is to develop, foster and maintain good working relationships through communication, collaboration, consultation and coordination to provide a safe and efficient transportation system for the movement of people, goods and services.
