WADSWORTH — Experience the energy of a drum circle, the exhilaration of traditional dancing and the appeal of time-honored hand games at one of Nevada’s many American Indian cultural events this summer.

The Silver State is home to several American Indian tribes — including the Paiute, Washoe and Western Shoshone — that live in various bands or groups throughout the state, and that showcase their individual heritage at annual powwows and special events.

Upcoming events include:

• Sacred Visions Powwow, July 22-24 at Big Bend Ranch, 50 Big Bend Ranch Road in Wadsworth.

• Wa She Shu It Deh arts festival, July 23-24 at Tallac Historic Site in South Lake Tahoe, Calif.

• Ely Shoshone Tribe Fandango, July 29-31 at the Wappin do-Ya-Be Center, 250 Heritage Drive in Ely.

• Spirit of Wovoka Days, Aug. 26-28 at the Joe Parr Sports Complex in Yerington.

For a comprehensive listing and for information on individual tribes and groups, visit or see the July/August issue of Nevada Magazine, a special edition on Indian Territory.
