Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Interpretive Kit

The Pyramid Lake Paiute People have lived on the shores of Pyramid Lake for nine to ten thousand years. The environment, our “Mother Earth” provided everything necessary to sustain life for the people for centuries. The Paiute People of Pyramid Lake have fought to protect Pyramid Lake since the first contact with Non-Indians in 1844. It is because they fought for their land with all of their hearts and refused to be pushed aside by the boundaries created by settlers that the Kooyooe Tukadu has been fortunate enough obtain Pyramid Lake and its boundaries as part on the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation.
