Episode 2: Grand Canyon

Parks by Mary Mathis, Cody Nelson

Episode notes

Havasupai, Hopi, Hualapai, and many other native tribes have been living in and around the Grand Canyon for time immemorial. For most of their lives, the threat of uranium mining or Disneyland-like tourist attractions were absent…until now.

On this episode, we hear from three Native women who have spent their life in and around The Grand Canyon, about their knowledge of this area, their work to protect the land today, and what they hope for the Grand Canyon's future.
