Havasupai Tribal Council 

The Havasupai Tribal Council has passed Resolution No. 41-21 extending the suspension of tourism until February 1, 2022.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Council made this difficult decision noting that it is in the best interests of the community and tribal members to suspend tourism and remain closed to tourists until February 1, 2022.

The Tribe has been actively involved in vaccination efforts in order to protect the community and tribal members in Supai Village. The Havasupai reservation remains on lockdown for the foreseeable future out of an abundance of caution and for the protection of tribal members.

Tourists with reservations during the suspension which have not already been rebooked are being rescheduled for the same date in 2022. No further reservations will be taken for the remainder of 2021 or for the 2022 tourist season. 

Because the coronavirus poses a grave public health threat to the Havasupai Tribe, the Tribal Council has implemented many proactive measures to prevent its spread to the Reservation, including the restriction of all travel into the Reservation, enacting mandatory quarantine orders for all Reservation residents, and suspending all tourism visits. As of today, there are no reported cases of COVID-19 in Supai Village, making it one of the only locations in the United States to report this status.

“In order to continue to protect the health and welfare of the Havasupai people and Supai Village residents, the Council finds it necessary to extend the suspension of its tourism operation until next year,” said Chairwoman Eva Kissoon.
