Havasupai Tribe: our precious land – Part II

“Our irrigation system is over 500 years old and it keeps on been used to water our crops.

The Fifty Foot Falls used to be our favorite swimming pool, but in 2008 there was a series a floods that hit the village, took most of the pools away, and knocked off the main stream.

Water is very sacred for our people because it’s the giver of life.

In the Havasu Canyon there are many beautiful places to camp, with natural spring water and many different species of plants and wildlife.

Our tribal members come here to swim and to offer prayers to the canyon and the water to continue to flow, a sacred ritual that is part of our culture.

We say that once a person passes away the spirit flows through the water and dives off into the pool, and the mist that swims back up represents the spirits of our ancestors. This is why we call these waterfallsMother of Waters’”.
