Guadalupe History

The town of Guadalupe was founded by Yaqui Native Americans in 1907, but was not officially incorporated until 1975. The Yaquis fled from their homeland, Sonora, and settled in present-day Guadalupe to avoid severe from the Mexican Government. Most of them came to the Salt River Valley to work on the construction of local canals. Since the city's inception, it has been known as a center of Yaqui culture and celebrates several Yaqui religious festivals throughout the year.
