The Kaibabs were a tribe of the Grand Canyon, drawing their name from the Kaibab Plateau on the northern rim of the Grand Canyon.


The Kaibabs were one of the tribes inhabiting the Grand Canyon, and were the second to be folded into the nascent Caesar's Legion. Caesar demonstrated to the Kaibabs the fate that would befall his enemies, showing them the Ridgers' village and the corpse mounds made from their numbers. Witnessing men, women, and children piled up, ruthlessly massacred, the Kaibabs were terrified and quickly swore fealty to their new master.[1]

Behind the scenes

Kaibab is another name typically given to agave plants found around the Arizona region. This type of agave also goes by other names, such as Utah agave and Nevada agave, the latter of which can be found in-game.


The Kaibabs are mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "What happened after you trained the Blackfoot?"
    Caesar: "Divide et impera - divide and conquer. I led the Blackfoot against the Ridgers, their weakest enemy. When they refused to surrender, I ordered every man, woman, and child killed. When next we surrounded the Kaibabs and they likewise refused... I took one of their envoys to the Ridgers' village and showed him the corpse piles. This was new for the tribes, you see. They played at war, raiding each other, a little rape and pillage here, a little ransoming there. I showed them total warfare. Like I said, there's a lot you can learn from old books."
