Adventure Journal, High Country News: Navajos Split on Grand Canyon Mega Development

This is normally something I’d strongly oppose but there is a strong argument in allowing the Navajo & Hopi the same form of commercial access to the canyon as the fed has, given how we acquired the canyon. I’ve seen portions of their lands and lifestyle. It’s a rough life. Clearly, some decorum would be appreciated. The tram’s a bit much.

  1. this debate is a real conundrum. The project as proposed doesn’t seem to involve the tribes sufficiently to call it “what the tribe wants,” but if there is a real process and the Navajo and Hopi agree on some plan that raises eyebrows – what should the response be then?

  2. Tough call indeed. Clearly the developers have a major stake in this as well, and because of that, could very well be pulling more strings than the public can see. It’s not like the tribes haven’t had commercial interest partnerships go awry before. I think any plan is going to raise eyebrows.
