GeoTrack "Wild Mustangs and Native Culture"

  1. 1. The Wild Mustang and Native Culture Adventure provides a fun and memorable understanding of the Paiute Tribe’s history, culture, traditions, and sustainable practices that serve the community surrounding Pyramid Lake, the wildlife and the future. Location Centered in Paiute territory, Pyramid Lake features unique geological rock formations with 125,000 surrounding acres where this geotourism adventure begins. Activities include; learning to feel the earth for wild mustang horses, discovering the ancient art of basket weaving, the value of a “solar highway” and insights from a heritage that made their life sustainable , (highlighted in the Paiute museum). Many native fish species still call Pyramid Lake their home, including Cui-ui fish and Lahontan cutthroat trout.
