Introduction Cocopah Indians

The Cocopah Indians (also called Cocopa), also known as the River People, are one of 22 Native American tribes who live in Arizona. They also reside in Baja, California and a portion of Mexico. They did not have a written language where important historical information could be written down. This is the reason why they have had to rely on what has been passed down through the generations by word of mouth. Travelers to the areas where these Indians lived also kept journals of their observations and experiences when they encountered the Cocopah people. They are described as a generous and non-materialistic group of people who value their heritage. Below are more interesting facts about the Cocopah people.
