SUPAI, Ariz. An American Indian tribe that lives in a gorge off the Grand Canyon plans to reopen the flood-damaged area to tourists on May 1.
Water from a summer thunderstorm surged through the canyon that is the ancestral home of the Havasupai Tribe in mid-August and forced the evacuation of hundreds of residents and tourists. The reservation has been closed to visitors since then, shutting down the economic lifeline of the community.
The tribe says on its Web site that it started taking reservations in January.
