Pisinemo (O'odham Pisin Moʼo) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Pima County, Arizona, United States. The population was 237 at the 2000 census.


The village of Pisinemo is located at 32°2′28″N 112°18′52″W / 32.04111°N 112.31444°W / 32.04111; -112.31444 (32.041078, -112.314459).[1]

The name Pisinemo is actually a failed attempt by the Motor Vehicle Division to put the traditional name of Pisin Mo'o onto road side signs along Highway 86 which runs through the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation.
