The History and Culture
of the Washoe Peoples
Saturday, September 17, 2-3 pm
The Washoe peoples have lived at Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas since time immemorial. The Federal Government, tourism, and development during the last century have driven the Washoe Tribe to the fringes of their aboriginal territory and disastrously impacted Washoe ancestral lands. This talk will help those who live in the area today gain a greater understanding of what the landscape, wildlife, and people who lived here were like in the past and how they have worked to preserve their way of life.
