Washeshu People

Washoe Indians – The Chief’s Family. 

Source:  Lawrence & Houseworth Publisher. 

Before the settlers came to the Truckee Meadows in the 1850’s, this area was employed by the Washeshu people as part of their migration route in the winter when the mountains were snowy. For at least 9000 years before the colonizers moved this far west,  the Washeshu utilized the local hot springs and were able to cook, drink, and bathe without fear of the water ever freezing. As a food source, the Washeshu hunted birds in the marshes and fished in the nearby Truckee River. The Washeshu also used the mineralized volcanic rocks as paint pigment. Many Washeshu and other Native American tribes still call this area their home, and more information can be found on the Reno, Sparks Indian Colony website here.
