Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe of Nixon, Nevada was one of 24 American Indian organizations and tribal youth programs to receive funding from First Nations through its Native Youth and Culture Fund (NYCF) for the 2016-17 funding cycle. First Nations launched the NYCF in 2002 with generous support from the Kalliopeia Foundation and other foundations and tribal, corporate and individual supporters.
The “Cultural Summer Day Camp” is designed to teach elementary youth Paiute culture and heritage through language immersion and through classes on traditional Paiute dances, songs, games and construction of traditional clothing.
