Since at least 1100 A.D., the Southern Paiute lived across southeastern Nevada and neighboring states. To survive the desert, they drank from springs, hunted wild game and harvested plants.
Today, the Southern Paiutes operate the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. In addition, the Moapa Paiute Travel Plaza with its 2,500-square-foot casino and fireworks store greets visitors on their way to Valley of Fire State Park.
The Moapa Paiutes also are developing the first large-scale solar project on tribal land, which will provide tribal revenue and jobs.
