Natural Resources Conservation



The Hualapai Tribe controls approximately one million acres of land adjoining 108 miles of the Grand Canyon South Rim by an Executive Order which created the Hualapai Reservation in 1883. The Hualapai Tribe (Hwal'Bay), also known as the People of the Tall Pines, live in lands of spectacular beauty and variety with rolling hills, rugged mesas, breathtaking cliffs, ponderosa pine forests, deep gorges, seeps and springs, which contain significant natural resources and are home to an abundance of wildlife, vegetation, and macro-invertebrate life.



dnr, educatiion and outreach, Natural Resources, youth


The Hualapai Department of Natural Resources strives to ensure the health of the land through a continued goal of education outreach and sustainable management.  The youth of our local community are one our greatest assets for the future of the Hualapai Tribe.

Our goals are to help young people from our local communities become more connected to the environment, engaged in conservation, involved in the community and prepared for a healthy future with resource conservation. We realize our mission and accomplish our goals through initiatives for youth and young adults.

The Department devotes a part of each programs time to help young people learn about the world around them and how they can be a part of conserving and protecting natural resources for future generations to come.


dnr, Natural Resources, Native American, Game Hunting


Our programs work to preserve and protect what we have and promote good land management.


"We are the land and the land is us.

We are one and the same."


This is the most fundamental and essential characteristic of Native American culture.  That has to be understood and respected by the management practices of the federal government and all other agencies. We cannot be separated from the land and its cultural significance to us as a people.

The Hualapai People have always held a sacred affiliation with those things which our mother earth has provided for our survival.  This includes all living plants, the wildlife, the waters, the geographic landscapes, and the whole ecological system of our world.

"We have always been

the guardians of these resources,

and we are so today."

- Delbert Havatone, Chairman past
