The Walker River Paiute Tribe
The Walker River Paiute Tribe is a federally recognized Tribe in Nevada. Our reservation was established in 1874 by Executive Order and is under the General Allotment Act of 1887. Before that time, the original Agai-Dicutta “Trout Eaters” Paiute were to be displaced along with other Bands to the Pyramid Lake Reservation. All Paiute’s in Nevada were to be on one Reservation. The forefathers fought to remain in our own lands and even traveled to Washington, D.C. after five attempts to remove us from our ancestral lands.
The mission of the Walker River Paiute Tribe is to maintain our Agai Dicutta heritage while carrying it into the future. The Tribe is dedicated and committed to advocating and protecting Tribal sovereignty. The Walker River Tribe shall foster the ideal of community self-determination and self-sufficiency. We will strive to promote, preserve, and protect the quality of life for our Tribal members.
