Archives & Records

The Tribal Archives was established in 1992 to preserve records that document the origin, development and achievements of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony. With over 40,000 photographs, the mission of the Tribal Archives and Records Center is to preserve and safeguard records of enduring value and to promote efficient management of records at the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony.Collection

Eligible researches are also allowed access to the open archival collections. We encourage you to make an appointment at least two business days ahead of time to view any collection in the Tribal Archives and Records Center.

We also offer digital photographic copy services for a small processing fee. We can do “in-house” duplication by scanning photographs with our professional scanner and print images on photographic paper. We can also send out the order and have the whole process done professionally. The fee is slightly higher for this service.
