Burns Paiute Tribe

Burns Paiute Tribe

The Burns Paiute Tribe are Northern Paiute people, culturally related to all the other Indigenous people of the Great Basin, a region that spans what is today Eastern Oregon, Nevada, Western Utah and parts of California. 

The Burns Paiute were created here and have lived in the high desert since time immemorial. Current archaeological evidence in the Northern Great Basin points to a tribal history spanning more than 750 generations, which is in keeping with the tribe’s own understanding of its origins and homelands.
