There is a Carson Pow Wow here once a year in June that I have been going to for a long time and I always enjoy it. The place is a bit eerie and sad in the history of how Native Americans were forced out of homes to go to White schools, but the local tribe doesn't want to burn... More

The Stewart Indian School was an integral part of the Carson City community and for those interested in Native American history, a visit to Stewart is a great way to learn how the Indians were made to assimilate into the white man's culture. The history of the various buildings can be heard on your cell phone.

When they have their Pow Wow, I could watch them set up all the booths. I have relation who have a booth there every year.... More

I really hope the center stays open.The Native Americans were here first and that is a real part of Nevada history - we must not loose the history, they must not loose their languaage and dress, and culture. Loved to gp tp the Pow-Wows -- let;s not loose it.

Seeing and experiencing the spiritual side of the Native American Indians is awe inspiring. I sometimes have to pinch myself to know this is real. These are real modern day Indians living among us. I feel so honored to be a part of their lives. I am grateful for the experience. To see them in full garb in all their... More

My husband spotted this amazing campus. It truly is worth seeing. The building materials alone are worth the price of admission (even if there is no admission price). It'll take as little time as 10 minutes to drive through the campus or longer if you'd like to linger.
