Kiowa Gordon, a Hualapai Tribal member and part of the "Twilight" series' "Wolf Pack," took the tribe's one-day whitewater rafting trip through the Grand Canyon Sept. 29. Gordon has never lost the connection with his Hualapai roots, but had yet to enjoy the Hualapai River Runners adventure. "This trip showed me firsthand what a unique Grand Canyon experience our tribe offers," said Gordon. "The connection we have with the Grand Canyon and the willingness to share it with the world gives me great pride. This is something everyone should try."
