RENO — The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony will honor its Native American veterans today with the largest Veterans Day dinner in northern Nevada. About 250 people are expected to attend, including more than 50 Native American veterans with their families and friends. Grateful tribute will also be paid to more than 100 deceased military veterans of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Robert Primeaux, a decorated Vietnam veteran who comes from a long line of Native American warriors. Despite his service-connected disabilities, Dr. Primeaux is a successful actor who has been in 14 movies and a number of TV series and documentaries. He has dedicated himself to helping all veterans in Nevada and throughout the nation with his work in many veterans’ organizations.

Lacy J. Dalton, one of the America’s best-known country music singers, will perform at the dinner and help pay respect to the colony’s veterans.

The event starts at 6 p.m. in the colony’s gymnasium at 34 Reservation Road in Reno. For more information, call 329-2936.
