Petition circulating to recall Hualapai chairwoman

PEACH SPRINGS - Another petition is circulating on the Hualapai Reservation to recall another member of the tribal council. According to the petition, Sherry Counts failed to properly represent the tribe in its legal battle with Skywalk developer David Jin by continuing to support the lawsuit against Jin instead of negotiating with him. The petitioners have 120 days from March 15 to collect at least 307 valid signatures in order for the recall election to occur.

The Hualapai Council has seen a lot of turnover since the dispute over the Skywalk began in 2010. Members Charlie Vaughn and Candida Hunter were recalled last week, former Chairwoman Louise Benson and Councilwoman Shari YellowHawk were suspended after calling for a vote to repeal the tribe's eminent domain ordinance in March 2012, and former Chairman Wilfred Whatoname was recalled in April 2011.

When Hualapai first started tourism, they did have great management who were Hualapai. The earlier Board let anglo consultants come in. They stole so much. Elders cleaned out the Reservation. Back to Hualapai. Did great! Board let another company ( who paid them rewards for allowing them in with the tribe) step in again to TRY TO HELP THE HUALAPAI. HA! Another group of rip off artists who did not care at all about the Hualapai people. They were then kicked off. I think the latest happenings show the people of the tribe are paying attention and do step in when they see anything that does not keep the RESPECT OF THE ELDERS or their families who deserve to be the ones who make the decisions.

An ooops to the copy editor. Hualapai is spelled wrong. [Editor: Indeed it was. Thanks.]

Why don't they get someone from the outside to do these high level negioations. Someone that has good experience and a formal business education?
If they can't because of some tribal law or regulation, at least contract out to some firm with knowledge and experience in these matters.
