The entire state of Nevada is known as Indian Territory and no wonder. Nevada’s Indian Territory is rich and robust in Western heritage representing 32 active American Indian communities throughout the state. Home to four major American Indian tribes – the Washoe, Northern Paiute, Southern Paiute and Western Shoshone – who all fee a deep connection to the environment and all its gifts, Nevada’s tribes sustained their ethnic identity longer than in other areas because it took longer for Euro-Americans to settle there.
