Behind the Legend

Sure enough, the Hualapai Indians, in conjunction with Native Americans across the country, will be opening this tourist attraction in 2006.

The Skywalk, constructed entirely from sticks and rawhide using traditional construction methods, will be accessible to visitors who pay a $20 fee and signs a waiver after being informed that if they lose their balance or are knocked aside by a gust of wind, they should just let themselves fall into the gentle waters of the Colorado below and "aim away from the rocks."

In an interesting and controversial move, the attraction's operators are only allowing white men to use the attraction. Native American, African, Asian, female, and (in some cases) Irish guests are invited to sit on the nearby bandstands and watch.
