The Hualapai own and occupy most of the south side of the western Grand Canyon, as one of the four major land-owners on that side of the Colorado River. In addition to their own history, they appear as actors in several arenas.
They figure in entries on the dams, including the very interesting 1930's plan of Fred Mahone for capitalizing on the presence of Hoover dam's reservoir along their north border.
In the first decade of this century, the Hualapai, GCNP, and Lake Mead NRA chiefs formed a Core Team to hold regular meetings, particularly on matters relating to river traffic in the western Canyon. This was an attempt to accept their disagreement on the boundary and collaborate where possible.
The northern boundary of the Hualapai Indian Reservation received special treatment in several posts. These posts also appear in the chapter on GCNP boundaries.
