Apache Gold Casino Resort is owned by the San Carlos Apache Tribe. This tribal land covers over 1.8 million acres in eastern Arizona, from the Sonoran Desert, to Ponderosa Pine Forests. The Tribe’s ancestral lands once stretched across Arizona into New Mexico. Historically, the San Carlos Apache were hunters, and they have deep cultural and spiritual ties to the land. The tribe has made the decision to keep most of its land in a natural state, which protects the habitat for big and small game, and allows the Apache to preserve their special and personal relationship with the natural world.
