Hualapai tribe could lose everything in Skywalk dispute

Risky business for tribe

The Hualapai Tribal Council could lose the Skywalk as the eventual result started by the recent $28.6 million ruling by an arbiter. Also at risk: The respect of some of its tribal members over the seizure of the famous landmark's contract by eminent domain. One former council chairwoman called the whole incident an embarrassment to the tribe. And a former tribal corporation board chairman called the council's actions "inappropriate" and warned they could scare off future investors.
