Burial site uncovered as part of Hualapai Tribe's road project

A burial site was uncovered as part of a road project for the Hualapai Tribe of Arizona.

Remains of a child, believed to be between 1 and 3 years old, were found by a construction worker. The tribe will be reburying the body in another location.

The road is located on Bureau of Land Management property. It will provide access to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, the tribe's popular tourist attraction.

The tribe opened a temporary route to the Skywalk after a non-Indian rancher blocked access from his property.
