In 1879 U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes included Camelback Mountain as part of a reservation for the Pima American Indian tribe, giving the land back to its original inhabitants. 6 months later the Arizona Territorial Legislature reversed the decision to protect the white settlers and push out the Native Americans, eventually seeing them settle in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC). SRPMIC is a sovereign tribe residing in central Arizona with an elected President and tribal council.
