Tohono O'odham, also called Papago, North American Indians who traditionally inhabited the desert regions of present-day Arizona, U.S., and northern Sonora, Mex. The Tohono O'odham speak a Uto-Aztecan language, a dialectal variant of Piman, and culturally they are similar to the Pima living to the north.
