based on quick and easy research: 7.5% of the Havasupai population has a bachelor's or higher. The average of all native groups is 9%. So no, you're wrong. And as for native peoples not being destroyed and forced into poverty? I just can't even fathom someone believing that but I'm not going to argue because obviously, its only gonna be a waste of time.Alston_Neal wrote:I'm not sure if remains still to this day, as being the highest college educated per capita Native group in North America.

+1. It's off my wish list, too (and not just because of the horses). If you want to get depressed about the state of things, read Abbey's description of the area from Desert Solitaire (he called it "Eden"). Then read some modern-day trip logs with tales of dogs, overcrowding, theft, etc. Bleh.Sredfield wrote:Whenever someone tells me about hiking to Havasupai they gush about the natural beauty then say "but.. the dogs, outhouses, filth, etc." So it has never risen to be a priority, and if that wasn't enough, this will be.
