The Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa is owned by the Gila River Indian Community. It is the only Native American-owned luxury resort in Arizona and has a staff member who is designated the Cultural Concierge for the resort. From the guest rooms to the Aji Spa, from the restaurants to the lobby ceilings and floors, every aspect of the resort was carefully designed to reflect the heritage and spirit of the area's native people, the Pima and Maricopa tribes. Even the nearby Whirlwind Golf Course, also owned by the Gila River Indian Community, names each of its 18 holes after a significant landmark or legend of the local tribes, and reflects their heritage in the architecture, art and landscaping.
The Cultural Tour is offered to the guests of the resort and is also open to the public. There is no charge for the tour, but reservations are required. A typical group might include between 10 and 20 people. Larger groups may make special arrangements for a guided tour.
