History

Spanish explorer Melchor Díaz documented his travels in Northwestern Mohave County in 1540.[7] The area was found to be populated by Native Americans, the Mojave Indian Tribe, for whom the county is named. This group of Mojave Indians referred to themselves as the Pipa Aha Macav, meaning "People by the River".[8]
