The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation presents the 37th Anniversary of the Orme Dam Victory Days Celebration. This historic event celebrates the tribe's victory over the federal government during their battle over the proposed Orme Dam that would have flooded a majority of the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation located 35 miles northeast of Phoenix. The proposed dam would have resulted in relocation, loss to crops, livestock, burial grounds, and historic sites just to name a few. This year's celebration will feature an All-Indian rodeo, Intertribal pow wow, Yavapai village & cultural performances, carnival for individuals of all ages, parade, sports tournaments, Native American & contemporary food, arts & craft vendors, and much more!
