Native America - Escalade

Saving the Grand Canyon’s Sacred Confluence

Developers want to build a controversial mega-resort and tramway at the confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado rivers.

Native America - Escalde (2)

The proposed tram would carry 10,000 people a day to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, dumping them at a cultural site significant to the canyon's Native peoples.

The so-called Escalade development has outraged local families and tribes who do not want this sacred area to be commercialized. To help stop the project, we're support the families in their advocacy efforts. Learn more about their fight to stop bad development ›
