Hualapai Tribe battles over another project

The Hualapai Tribe of northern Arizona, already accused of breaching a contract to seize the Grand Canyon Skywalk, has taken over a second major tourism project from investment partners, this time the Western-themed town known as Hualapai Ranch.

According to Jim Brown, who built the attraction and cabins on reservation land under a revenue-sharing agreement, the tribe unilaterally kicked out his Western Destinations company last month.

The new controversy emerged publicly as Hualapai leaders moved to appeal a $28.6 million federal court judgment in favor of Las Vegas developer David Jin, who successfully sued the tribe’s business arm over seizure of Skywalk.
