You get chills just thinking about it. Here at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, the Hualapai Indians are building a glass walkway that will extend out over the canyon floor 4,000 feet below.

I am very pleased to see that the great Hualapai Indians are going to be able to utilize the beutiful land they have for others to see, and hope the revenues from this project will be put to good use. I hope all goes well with this project. Kudos to the person or persons responsible for the idea.

Sure its cool. Guess who's money was uised to fund this so call class walker.
Your tax and Bond $$$ Used thru some council members within Mohave the city council

Rename Hualapai to KINGMAN MTN.

Anyway I am selling very shortly Glas Walking insurance.
Besides we need to change the name of Hualapai Mountain to Lingman Mountain.
The Indians has nothing to do or has thewy ever linked to the mt.
$$much money is lost because of their behaviour saying we lassociate with the Kingman culture.
Sorry they have not.

What proof do you have to show that American tax dollars were used to fund this project? As far as I can tell its paid for by the tribe of Native Americans. Even supposing it was by paid for by the local/state/federal gov't, it'll attract tourists and with that more tax dollars.

Why changed the name? Are you somehow bigoted against the Hualapai tribe?

I WENT TO THE WEST RIM IN APRIL OF 06' I THINK IT IS A SHAME THAT THE ROADS GETTING THERE ARE NOT BETTER MAINTAINED, IT SHOULD BE FEDERAL FUNDED AND THE ROADS PAVED, AS THIS IS ONE OF OUR NATIONAL TREASURES ,,, AND IN REALITY INDIANS HOME LAND THAT WE INVADED.. THE FEW ACRES WE LEFT THEM, MOST OF WHICH WHITE MAN THOUGHT WAS WASTE LAND ...( OPPS WERE THEY WRONG!!! AND WHO EVER HEARS ABOUT INDIANS BITCHIN ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS?? WHERES THE UNITED INDIAN FUND??? WHITE MAN TOOK INDIAN LAND THEY CANT GO BACK TO THEIR ROOTS!!! I WAS ALSO AMAZED WITH ALL THE LAND IN PHOENIX AREA INDIAN PROPERTY..THE ROAD ON THE WAY IN AFTER YOU TURN OFF THE PAVEMENT TO THE RIM IS IN TERRIBLE CONDITION AND I WOULD CLASSIFY IT AS A JEEP TRAIL! THERE WERE SEVERAL VEHICLES BROKE DOWN LOSING OIL PANS AND BUSTED TIRES ,,, ALTHOUGH IT IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND SENIC AREA,, IF YOU CAN HANDLE ALL THE BUMPS AND 5 MILE AN HOUR GOING... I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND DRIVING YOUR PORCHE OR ANY LOW RIDER CARS THERE..

The Indians need a friend in high places to get that road paved.
It's a shame we waste money on things we don't really need and we won't fund the paving of a road so the REAL NATIVE AMERICANS can support themselves.
