Havasuw `Baaja, the people of the blue green waters, are the traditional guardians of the Grand Canyon. Related to the Yuman, the Havasupai have from the beginning inhabited the Grand Canyon and its environs.

By 1919 with the establishment of the Grand Canyon National Park, the tribe was restricted to 518 acres, 5 miles wide and 12 miles long in a side canyon. The tribe has since had returned to them 188,077 acres of their former homelands which makes up their reservation today.

The Havasupai Reservation is located in Coconino County, at the southwest corner of the Grand Canyon National Park. The nearest community to the Reservation is Peach Springs, 64 miles southwest from Hualapai Hilltop.
