Havasupai adobe dwelling in the Grand Canyon, Arizona. The dome-shaped dwelling is formed of a lattice of sticks covered with thatching while another dwelling is visible at right behind it.

By the 1880s, sufficient social contact with the Navajos appears to have occurred for the Havasupai to adopt the Navajo type hogan (cabin).

The Havasupai Reservation is located 90 miles northwest of Flagstaff, Arizona. There are roughly 650 tribal members, many of whom live in the village of Supai in the bottom of Havasu Canyon (also known as Cataract Canyon). The name Havasupai means “people of the blue-green waters” for their beautiful canyon home.
