Grand Canyon Skywalk Dispute
By Jude Joffe Block
Grand Canyon, Arizona – Back in 2007, the Hualapai Native American tribe of Northern Arizona came up with a way for tourists to walk ABOVE the Grand Canyon's Western rim. The Skywalk is a glass horseshoe-shaped walkway that juts out above the canyon.
The attraction was built with the help of a Las Vegas businessman who invested millions, and it opened with great fanfare. But now four years later, Jude Joffe-Block reports from the Fronteras Changing America Desk, the management of the attraction is on shaky ground.
