Brief Profile

The Mohave ((Mojave) are a Native American people indigenous to the Colorado River in the Mojave Desert. The Fort Mojave Indian Reservation includes territory within the borders of California, Arizona, and Nevada. Tribal headquarters are located in Needles, California.

Historically, the Mojaves lived within a clan system that was given to them in First Time by Mastamho, the Creator. They were named for things above the Earth - the sun, clouds and birds: and for things of the Earth and below the Earth. They believed that Mastamho gave them 22 patrilinear clans (today that number is reduced to 18), and the children took the name of their father’s clan, though only women used the clan name.

With the above in mind, the Mohave traditionally adhered to their ethnic religion. However, during the 19th century, some have converted to Christianity.

Prayer Points

  • Pray Mohave Christians will boldly share both in word and deed their faith in Christ with unreached Mohave and other Native American people.
  • Pray Mohave Christians will grow strong in God's Word and an understanding of living a life of missions no matter where they reside or who they encounter.
  • Pray God will work in the hearts and minds of Mohave to experience a personal and daily relationship with Jesus Christ.
