Papagos (Papahotas), a numerous people of North Mexico, about the head of the Gulf of California, between the Altar and Gila rivers; are of Pima stock, very tall and vigorous, with fair complexion, no darker than that of South Europeans. The Papagos are chiefly stock-breeders and fishers, of peaceful disposition, and strict monogamists, treating their women with great respect. Many migrate periodically across the frontiers, seeking employment in the mining districts of Arizona, where the United States Government has lately assigned them a reservation 120 square miles in extent. These number about 5,000, and are all nominal Christians.
