The Havasupai tribe can only be reached by foot, mule or helicopter.

Most tourists had been flocking annually to see the Grand Canyon. But there are only few knowledge and attention given to a tribe that has been living within its depths for the past 800 years. The Havasupai tribe has about 600 members, and is considered as the smallest Indian tribe in the country. The village of Supai - eight miles from the nearest road - travelling only via mule or a helicopter or on foot, welcomes visitors to stay overnight.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - The Havasupai tribe has about 600 members, and is considered the smallest Native American tribe in the country. The village of Supai - eight miles from the nearest road - with members travelling only via mule, a helicopter or on foot, welcomes visitors to stay overnight.

Havasupai came from the terms 'Havasu' which means blue-green water and 'pai' meaning people. Their village, located in the state of Arizona, has a cafe, a lodge, post office, school, LDS chapel, one small Christian church and some general stores, according to the report by the Daily Mail.

The tribe has plantations and weaves for livelihood, yet are not considered sustainable because of the nearby Cataract Creek that causes flooding. Through the passing of the Grand Canyon National Park Enlargement Act in 1975, the Havasupai regained their ancestral lands from the National Park Service, with an estimate of 185,000 acres.

Supai village is at the bottom of the Havasu Canyon, which has picturesque landscape. After regaining their land, tourism has been a major part of their income; about 20,000 visitors stay overnight yearly to experience the culture and see the beauty of the streams and waterfalls.

Keep a rosary always within your reach. Find the perfect rosaries for home, work and parish.

Visitors are able to mingle with the people, but day hiking within and outside the Havasu Canyon is prohibited, but there are other trails to the waterfalls.

Tourists are led to the Havasu Falls, which is also called the Garden of Eden in the desert. They can enjoy the blue-green waters of the Mooney Falls, then at the bottom of the trail, they experience the Beaver Falls before proceeding to the Colorado River.
