    Hualapai – Native Americans of the Southwest

    Hualapai or Walapai (Xawdlapdiya), “Pine Tree People,” were named after the pinon pine nut. With the Havasupai, they are called the Pai (Pa’a) Indians (“the People”: the Hualapai are the Western Pai, and the Havasupai are the Eastern Pai). They are also described, with the Havasupai and the Yavapai, as Upland Yumans, in contrast to the River Yumans, such as the Mojave and Quechan.
