Yaquis Tribe

Ciudad Obregon as the city is known today has a deep-rooted history stemming from the Native American Ethnic Yaqui Group that defended their territory and culture and maintained independence from the Spanish Colonists in the 1700’s.

The Yaquis to this day still practice traditional medicine with the use of herbs and ointments and continue to celebrate important festivities with traditional dance rituals and music unique to this indigenous tribe. Find out more information here
