Chihuahua is a state in northern Mexico that borders Arizona in the United States. The Pima Bajo people straddle this area and live in both countries.

Almost all Pima Bajo consider themselves Christian. The Pima Bajo practice the form of Roman Catholicism taught them by the Jesuits during Spanish colonial days. Pima Bajo tribal leaders organize and supervise their religious festival, Holy Week, and Mexican tourists attend.
