Yaqui (or Hiaki ), locally known as Yoeme or Yoem Noki, is a Native American language of the Uto-Aztecan family. It is spoken by about 20,000 Yaqui people, in the Mexican state of Sonora and across the border in Arizona in the United States.
The Pascua Yaqui Tribe was granted federal recognition on September 18, 1978 (Public Law 95-375; 92 Stat. 712).
Red stands for the blood that was shed to protect the Yaqui people, their land, their customs and their religion. White symbolizes purity of spirit. Blue signifies the sky where the Yaqui mother, Maala Mecha, and Yaqui father, Achi Taa’ah, reside.

Separation of the Aztecs and Yaquis Once the Northern and Southern Uto-Aztecan Groups diverged, the ancestors of the present-day Aztecs, Yaquis and Mayos apparently made their way into the territory of Sonora in the present-day Mexican Republic.
