About the Sacred Visions Pow-Wow
In 2009 the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and the Sacred Visions Pow-Wow Committee held the First Sacred Visions Pow-Wow. The objective of this project was to attract out-of-state participants and spectators to the event, and in turn, create a positive economic impact for the economies of Northern Nevada and the Tribe. The Sacred Visions Pow-Wow Committee consists of a group of Tribal Members who have a vision to bring the community together and improve the quality of life on the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation. The first Sacred Visions Pow-Wow attracted over 3,000 people from all across the Western United States and helped support the local economies of Pyramid Lake and Northern Nevada.
