SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation announces its re-launch of the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort as the new We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center effective September 30, 2014.

Incorporating the We-Ko-Pa name, meaning “Four Peaks” in Yavapai, not only complements the spectacular mountain scenery and free-flowing Verde River surrounding the resort, it strengthens its synergistic relationship with the nearby award-winning We-Ko-Pa Golf Club.
