Reno-Sparks Indian Colony
Three Tribes, One Nation
The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony was established in the early 1900’s and formed a federally recognized government in 1934 under the Indian Reorganization Act. Located in Reno, Nev., the RSIC consists of about 1,100 members from three Great Basin Tribes – the Paiute, the Shoshone and the Washoe. The reservation lands consist of the original 28-acre Colony located in central west Reno and another 1,920 acres in Hungry Valley, which is 19 miles north of the Colony and west of Spanish Springs, Nev., nestled in scenic Eagle Canyon.
The RSIC is a vibrant, expanding organization which balances our traditional teachings and rich culture with contemporary business methods and innovative governmental practices. We employ more than 300 people; more than 150 are our own tribal members. Our vision is for a strong community that promotes and encourages individual spiritual, physical and emotional health to foster a long, abundant and prosperous life, which will lead to personal, family and community responsibility and prosperity.
