Whatoname had another perspective. “There wasn’t much input by our local community, but now that we have become world-known, lots of our people are taking a positive interest in what happens here. It has brought back honor to our people. I recently traveled to England and going to a different country, and hearing about our tribe and Skywalk from other nations was very special.”
I wouldn't equate being mentioned by someone with being honored. But I'm not an Indian.
