LITTLE COLORADO RIVER GORGE, Ariz. (AP) Daredevil Nik Wallenda is using the Navajo Nation as a backdrop to one of his most ambitious feats yet crossing a tightrope 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge near the Grand Canyon.
Petit didn't return messages left by The Associated Press. PDT on Sunday with a 10 second delay. Wallenda will be wearing two cameras, one looking down the mostly dry Little Colorado River bed and one facing straight ahead. His leather shoes with an elk skin sole will help him keep a grip on the steel cable as he moves across.
began wire walking at the age of 2, on a 2 foot high stretched rope. He grew up performing with his family and has dreamed of crossing the Grand Canyon since he was a teenager.
Wallenda is highly confident in his ability to reach the other side, having walked in 52 mph wind gusts during Tropical Storm Andrea with a torrential downpour and training with wind machines that simulated 45 55 mph gusts. The only thing that would stop him entirely is lightning within a 15 mile radius, he said.

"When people watch this, our main thing is we want the world to know who Navajo people are, our culture, traditions and language are still very much alive," said Geri Hongeva, spokeswoman for the tribe's Division of Natural Resources.
Wallenda is a seventh generation high wire artist and is part of the famous "Flying Wallendas" circus family a clan that is no stranger to death defying feats and great tragedy.
Should wind gusts that are expected to be around 30 mph threaten to throw him off, Wallenda said he'll grab hold of the wire and wait it out if possible. A paramedic will be looking up at him from the river, he said.
"I don't understand why he didn't," Wallenda said. "It's a site that works, makes sense. He clearly failed at it, so I want to do it successfully."
The stunt is touted as a walk across the Grand Canyon, an area held sacred by many American Indian tribes, and the fulfillment of a dream. Some local residents believe Wallenda hasn't accurately pinpointed the location and also say that the Navajo Nation shouldn't be promoting the gambling of one man's life for the benefit of tourism.
The more than 2 hour broadcast also will showcase the Navajo landscape that includes Monument Valley, Four Corners, Canyon de Chelly and the tribal capital of Window Rock.

"Mr. Wallenda needs to buy a GPS or somebody give this guy a map," said Milton Tso, president of the Cameron community on the Navajo Nation. "He's not walking across the Grand Canyon, he's walking across the Little Colorado River Gorge on the Navajo Nation. It's misleading and false advertising."

His great grandfather, Karl Wallenda, fell during a performance in Puerto Rico and died at the age of 73. Several other family members, Belt Louis Vuitton including a cousin and an uncle, have perished while performing wire walking stunts.
The 34 year old Sarasota, Fla., resident will set out Sunday on a quarter mile cable stretched over the gorge that was eyed by another high wire performer decades ago. The stunt comes a year after he traversed Niagara Falls earning a seventh Guinness world record. He'll be using the same 2 inch thick cable he used to cross the falls, only this time he won't be wearing a safety harness.
walker Philippe Petit had that same desire and set up a cable above the Little Colorado River, but Navajo officials said he never went through with the stunt and left his equipment there only to be taken down Lv Belt Graphite
