Paiute Indians

The Paiute Indians were the first humans to make Nevada their home. We hear from three members of the Moapa band of Paiutes, Irene Benn, Evelyn Samalar and Lullaby Miller, who tell stories about the days before and after white settlers moved in.

You can download and read transcripts of the entire interviews.
