While the Grand Canyon in Arizona is a worthwhile attraction for hikers, photographers and those who want to experience a stunning and rare landscape, it’s also a destination rich in Native American culture. Today, there are three tribes that live in and around the Grand Canyon, including the Havasupai who live in one of the canyon sides, the Hualapai who live near the West rim and the Navajo who live on the outskirts.

The Havasupai offer several tourist options. Start with the Havasu Falls, a crystal blue waterfall gushing against vibrant red rocks that is often touted as one of the Grand Canyons most scenic spots. Located in the Havasupai Indian Reservation, the attraction is about a 10-mile hike from the Hualapai Hilltop, so camping or staying at the Havasupai Lodge is recommended.
