Native Community Action is sponsoring a Native American Ethnohistory Gathering at the UNLV Barrick Museum of Art auditorium, April 28th, 2018 from 3pm - 7pm. The event is to provide engagement with Native American Tribal communities throughout the Great Basin.

The Native American Ethnohistory Gathering is a series of events to document the life-ways and oral history of Great Basin people. You are invited to join us as we share our oral traditions, culture, and art in an effort to write Native American history that is literally, the unwritten history of the west.
