Most people who study the O'odham study the Tohono O'odham or the Gila River O'odham. These are not the same people
as the Sobaipuri. Some Sobaipuri went to the Gila River when they left the San Pedro. Others went to the Tucson area and
intermixed with the Sobaipuri residing in settlements there, including at Wa:k or as Kino referred to it: San Xavier del Bac.
Many Tohono O'odham have intermarried with the Sobaipuri at San Xavier, but in doing so, this makes them Wa:k O'odham,
just as those who intermarried with the Apache became Apache. The references listed below discuss the Sobaipuri rather
than those other O'odham groups.

Publications postdating 2007 are likely to contain the most recent and revised version of who the Sobapuri were owing to
the abundant new data available since then from archaeological and historic research that has revealed new perspectives.
