Havasupai star in IMAX film

Canoes, kayaks travel Downtown Canal

Flotilla links Downtown Canal to Grand Canyon IMAX filmIt wasn't the Grand Canyon, but river guide Shana Watahomigie visited Indianapolis on Saturday anyway to try a leisurely paddle on the Downtown Canal.

Watahomigie, a member of the Havasupai tribe, spoke for waterways conservation and promoted a 3D film about the Grand Canyon debuting this weekend at the Indiana State Museum's IMAX theater.

Watahomigie and her daughter, Cree--stars in the film--led a "flotilla" of nine canoeists and kayakers on the canal.
