The Havasupai Indian Reservation is a Native American reservation for the Havasupai people, surrounded entirely by the Grand Canyon National Park, in Coconino county in Arizona, United States. It is considered one of America’s most remote Indian reservations. The reservation is governed by a seven-member tribal council, led by a chairman who is elected from among the members of the council. The capital of the reservation is Supai, situated at the bottom of Cataract Canyon, one of the tributary canyons of the Grand Canyon. Havasupai is a combination of the words Havasu (meaning “blue-green water”) and pai (meaning “people”), thus meaning “people of the blue-green waters”.
It’s one of the most amazing natural wonders in the world, as well as one of it’s best kept secrets. Getting there is not easy; it requires a 10 mile hike through canyon valleys to get there, but as you can see, it’s worth every step.
