The Yoeme or Yaqui/Hiaki are a Native American tribe who originally lived in the valley of the Río Yaqui in the northern Mexican state of Sonora and throughout the Sonoran Desert region into the southwestern U.S. state of Arizona. The Yaqui call themselves “Yoeme,” the Yaqui word for person (“yoemem” or “yo’emem” meaning “people”). The Yaqui call their homeland “Hiakim,” from which some say the name “Yaqui” is derived. They may also describe themselves as Haiki Nation or Pascua Hiaki, meaning “The Easter People”. Many folk etymologies exist as to how the “Yoeme” came to be known as the “Yaqui”
