25TH Annual Southern Paiute Veterans Pow-Wow
November 6, 2016

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.

    1. Agreed. My wife is the one who wanted to go. All I was thinking is hot and uncomfortable. But it wasn’t bad at all. There were all ages of kids- boys and girls- and adults competing.

  1. I love this image Emilio 🙂 She is so young yet looks so confident with her dance. I can’t say enough about this image other than superb work. I also see that you used the long lens on this one 🙂


    1. I started with the long lens because we seemed pretty far away from the dancing. But as the day progressed, I had to switch to the 18-55. This girl was about the youngest. There were all age groups and both sexes into adults and even seniors. They were all very confident, except the seniors walked more than hopped around.
