Part of one of Arizona's original four counties, Wikieup shares an interesting history with the whole of Mohave County. Prior to the coming of the white men in the valley, the place where the county is situated today used to be the settlement of the Mojave Indians. The Indians used to cultivate corn and other food crops aided by the rich, river-nourished soil of the valley. However, the Mojaves are not alone in the region. They have fierce rivals in the tribe of the Tonto Apaches. Mostly, the two tribes do not seek disputes with each other but all that changed with the coming of the white men.
The settlement of the white men pushed both tribes farther from their source of livelihood. This resulted in several disputes between the white wen, the Tontos, and the Mojaves. In one of these disputes, two white girls were abducted. The white men laid the blame on the Mojave tribe but they found out after two years that the girls were taken by the more savage Tonto Indians. The girls were rescued by the Mojaves and were actually treated as part of the chief's family.
As token of their gratitude, the white settlers named the county after the Mojaves. The white settlers and the Mojaves coexisted in the area, that is why it is common for a person from Mohave County to have a mixed heritage. It was said that Wikieup's present location was the part of the land allotted by the white settlers for the Mojaves. Thus, that section was named Wikieup -- a native American or Mojave Indian word for "shelter" or "home."
