Havasupai Indian Reservation
Known for their association with the Grand Canyon, the Havasupai (pronounced "have a soup pie") Indians have inhabited the canyon and surrounding areas for more than 1000 years.
All the residents of the reservation live in Supai Village, in 3000 foot deep Havasu Canyon - all supplies, including mail, are packed in by horse and mule train. A perennial creek flows over three breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and several smaller waterfalls. Havasupai means "people of the blue green water."
The tribe operates a lodge and a campground near Havasu Falls and most guests arrive via foot or horseback (some by helicopter) along an 8-mile trail which descends the canyon. The number of visitors allowed is limited to prevent overcrowding. Guests must make advance reservations (suggested a year in advance) and a deposit is required.
Major events held:
Havasu Peach Festival (2nd weekend of August)
Grandmother Canyon Gathering (every fall)
The tribe is noted for basketry and beadwork.
