History[ edit ] Relation with Hualapai[ edit ] Ethnically, the Havasupai and the Hualapai are one people, although today, they are politically separate groups as the result of U. The Hualapai Pa'a or Pai had three subtribes: The subtribes were divided into seven bands, which themselves were broken up into thirteen regional bands or local groups. Although living primarily above and inside the Grand Canyon, which consists mostly of harsh terrain, the tribe's reservation was also home to some lush vegetation and aquamarine blue water of Havasu Creek. Their name, meaning "the People of the Blue-Green Waters" reflects this. The Havasupai are said to have existed within and around the Grand Canyon for over eight centuries. Little is known about the tribe prior to their first recorded European encounter in with Spanish priest Francisco Garces. Even as interaction with settlers slowly increased, day-to-day life did not change much for the tribe until silver was discovered in by Cataract Creek. The Havasupai sought protection from the intrusion of western pioneers on their land and sought out assistance, but to little avail. An executive order by President Rutherford Hayes in established a small federally protected reservation for the tribe, yet it did not include the mining areas along the Creek Hirst, During this era, Havasupai relations with other Native American tribes were generally mixed. Bonds and interactions with the Hopi tribe, whose reservation was in close proximity, were strong, as the two peoples did a great deal of trading with each other. Still, the Havasupai were not without enemies as they were consistently at odds with the Yavapai and the Southern Paiute, who would steal and destroy crops planted by the Havasupai. Arthur issued an executive order that all land on the plateau of the canyon, which was traditionally used for winter homes for the tribe, was to become public property of the United States. According to reports, the Havasupai were completely unaware of the act for several years. In construction opened on a spur line of the Santa Fe Railroad, which was to lead directly to the Grand Canyon;  by the line was open. Roosevelt told them about the park that was being created, and that they would have to leave the area. However, it was not until that the Havasupai finally left Indian Garden, forced out by the National Park Service. Low morale spread throughout the tribe, leading to an increase in gambling, alcoholism, and violence. As the years progressed the Havasupai came to realize that they could not hope to survive in their American social situation without embracing at least some aspects of it. Breaking horses, working on farms, or even serving as employees of the Grand Canyon National Park were all options for tribal members. That value ended up being 55 cents an acre, totaling just over one million dollars. Although the case was a landmark for the Havasupai in the sense that it was proven in a court of law that the federal government had inappropriately taken their land, it had still not been properly returned to the tribe. In , garnering support from the Nixon administration as well as influential newspapers such as the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the San Francisco Chronicle, the tribe made their push to have the congressional bill S. Similarly, the bill sat on President Gerald Ford's desk until the final possible moments before it was signed and passed into law on January 4, The largest of the mines is in Carbonate Canyon, adjacent to Havasu Falls, where rails and timbers still can be found descending three levels. Lead was mined here for the last time during WWII. Ranger Gale Burak, who worked at the Grand Canyon for several years, spoke of her experiences as a cook for the Havasu Lead and Zinc Company hard rock mining camp,  where the campground now resides. Below Mooney Falls, the famous pipe "ladder" ascended to a vanadium deposit. Although many of the day-to-day customs that existed prior to are not well established today, the Havasupai have continued to respect and preserve the traditions of their ancestors. As of today the tribe consists of about This included research with regard to the tribe's ancestors' geographical origins - which contradicts traditional Havasupai beliefs - and levels of inbreeding , which was deemed to be "offensive". While in the winter the tribe members stationed themselves on the plateau of the canyon, in the summer irrigation gardening of the crop fields brought the members back inside the canyon walls. Because of a lack of available soil rich in nutrients, it has been suggested that the tribe cultivated only acres 0. However, being located at the bottom of a canyon left the fields vulnerable to flooding as a result of rain and the overflowing of Cataract Creek, as was the case in when almost an entire crop field was destroyed. Corn, the tribe's main crop, was generally harvested in the later summer months. While growing, a farming technique called cepukaka was used to protect the corn from being blown over when it got to a certain height. In this technique, a farmer loosened the soil around the corn and then pulled it into a hill around the stalk base. By the s these crops had become staples of the Havasupai diet. Built from an unidentifiable tree, an entire process of crafting, bending, and designing went into the construction of these hunting tools. The word for "arrow" began to stand in for "bullet" as well Whiting, Throughout the years, sheep and deer were the dominant game for the Havasupai, but small game including rabbits and squirrels were also used as food. In the twentieth century, however, due to overhunting and neighboring development, the populations of large game animals such as sheep became sparse. As a result, the Havasupai were forced to alter their hunting habits to adjust to the expansionists, which in turn made tribesmen less likely to share with others. Two primary methods were used: Additionally, dry foods that could be stored for extended periods of time to prevent spoilage were preferable.
