Hualapai Extension

FRTEP - 1862

The Hualapai and Havasupai tribes speak closely related languages and
are located on ancestral lands on the edge of the Grand Canyon of the
Colorado River. The Hualapai Reservation is nearly a million acres in
size and includes diverse ecosystems from desert scrublands at 1200
feet to ponderosa pine forests at over 7,400 feet elevation. The main
village of Supai on the Havasupai Reservation lies in a major tributary
drainage to the Grand Canyon, and can be accessed only by foot, mule,
or helicopter.

The Extension Office has worked with the Hualapai Tribe to obtain
thousands of dollars of grant funding to support its Agriculture and
Natural Resources programs and to conduct special demonstration
projects. Recent activities include helping the Tribe to design and
implement plans for managing livestock records and disease emergencies.
The office is currently helping tribal livestock owners to evaluate the
potential for marketing locally-raised beef. Current projects in the
community include establishing gardens and landscaping with native
plants at the tribal Elementary School and a newly established Boys and
Girls Club.

The Peach Springs Extension Program has offered agriculture, natural
resources, and 4-H youth development programs to the two Grand Canyon
tribes since its establishment in 2002. After the Havasupai Tribe
banished State university personnel from their Reservation in 2004, the
office has worked exclusively with the Hualapai Tribe.
