Native Americans In Early Nevada —
The Nevada climate is very arid, receiving little rain or precipitation except in the mountain areas. Despite this harsh environment,
Native Americans were present in pre-historic times for at least 10,000 years, living in small, mobile family groups and surviving
because of highly refined hunting and gathering skills. Only a few bands or tribes in southern Nevada practiced limited agriculture
to supplement their mobile food gathering practices.
