cooperative management of City and BLM controlled lands for
occupations in the CFRA date back at least 4,000 years. Late
Archaic, Cerbat, Cohonina, and Hualapai people lived here. In 1871
the Army built a military post at Camp Beale Springs and established
a temporary reservation for the Hualapai Tribe in this area.
