The Great Spirit created man and woman in his own image. In doing so, both were created as equals and dependent on each other in order to survive. Great respect was shown for each other; in doing so, happiness and contentment were achieved. The connecting of the hair makes them one person, as happiness cannot be achieved without each other. The canyons, where the people were created, are represented by the purple in the middle ground. These canyons are sacred and should be so treated at all times. The reservation is pictured to represent the land that is ours. The reservation is our heritage and the heritage of our children yet unborn. Be good to our land and it will continue to be good to us. The sun is the symbol of life; without it nothing is possible—plants won’t grow —there will be no life. The sun also represents the dawn of the Hualapai people. Through hard work, determination, and education, everything is possible. The tracks in the middle represent the coyote and other animals that were here before us. The green symbolizes pine trees, representing us, Hualapai— PEOPLE OF THE TALL PINES.
