The Grand Canyon Skywalk

Grand Canyon Skywalk, an attraction located two hours from Las Vegas on the Grand Canyon’s West Rim that hosts more than 620,000 visitors per year.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk Development LLC employs about 100 people and is headquartered in Las Vegas.

David Jin, owner of the Skywalk, said the company is proud of its relations with the Hualapai Tribe, which shares profits with the Skywalk.
“Ted lends the Skywalk an important perspective as a member of the Hualapai Tribe, as a former tribal law enforcement officer and as Chairman of the Nevada Indian Commission,” Jin said. “We are proud of his service to his community.”

The Indian Law and Order Commission will study tribal criminal justice systems, including issues related to jurisdiction over crimes on reservations, the relation between tribal jails and the federal prison system, juvenile justice systems and the Indian Civil Rights Act.
Quasula served as chief of police for the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe from 2003 to 2007.  He also served for 26 years in the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Law Enforcement Services within the Bureau of Indian Affairs, where he worked his way up from field criminal investigator to director of the national program from 1990 to 2000. Quasula started his law enforcement career with the Flagstaff, Arizona, Police Department in 1972.

Currently, Quasula serves as Chairman of the Nevada Indian Commission and Vice President of the Board of Directors for the Northern Arizona University Alumni Association. Mr. Quasula is a graduate of the Government Program for Senior Executives at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy.  He holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in police science and administration from Northern Arizona University.
Located at the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, the Grand Canyon Skywalk allows visitors to “Walk the Sky” with its unique glass-bottomed cantilever U-shaped observation deck that spans 70 feet (21.34 meters) over the canyon’s rim and sits 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) above the Colorado River.  A construction masterpiece, the glass – which is the only element that separates visitors from the deep canyon floor – weighs 1.2 million pounds.

Completed in March 2007, the Skywalk is located on the Hualapai Indian Reservation in northwest Arizona and is the only architectural wonder of its kind that allows visitors to truly take in the experience of this beautiful and majestic place.
