Chairwoman of Hualapai Tribe seeks to resolve Skywalk fight

The leader Hualapai Tribe of Arizona wants to resolve a dispute with the non-Indian developer who used to operate the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The tribe exercised its eminent domain law to take over the popular tourist attraction from developer David Jin. Chairwoman Louise Benson believes the decision was unfair.

"My belief is it's not good for my tribe, my people, at all," Benson told the Associated Press. "It was only meant for one individual, and I felt that was wrong."

The tribal council voted 5-3 to repeal the law, a move Benson pushed for.
