Havasupai Tribe

The Havasupai Tribe has dwelt in the Grand Canyon and the rest of north-central Arizona for over 1,000 years, practicing summertime irrigated farming in the canyons and wintertime hunting in the plateaus. Havasupai means "people of the blue green water".

The Havasupai Tribe Reservation is at the end of Indian Route 18 off historic Route 66. It consists of 188,077 acres of canyon land and broken plateaus abutting the western edge of the Grand Canyon's south rim. Residents live in Supai Village in the 3,000 foot deep Havasu Canyon. The reservation was established in 1880 and substantially enlarged in 1975. The tribe is known for its location, traditional cultural life, and beautiful arts and crafts.

Things to Do

Havasupai Museum of Culture displays the history, culture, art and traditions of the Havasupai as well as hosts social gatherings, such as dance, feasts, art fairs and video festivals.

Havasu Canyon: Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls are the blue-green waterfalls that captivate and enchant many people around the world; located just beyond the Havasupai village and can be seen and heard as you hike down to the Campgrounds. Link to page
