The Hualapai or Walapai are a tribe of Native Americans who live in the mountains of northwestern Arizona.The name is derived from “hwa:l” the Hualapai word for ponderosa pine, thus “Hualapai” means “people of the ponderosa pine.” Their traditional territory is a 108-mile (174 km) stretch along the pine-clad southern side of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River with the tribal capital located at Peach Springs.
