Pamela Abercrombie continues our lecture series tonight with a talk about the History of Nevada Indian Tribes: The Numu, Newe, Nuwu, and Wa She Shu.
Pam will be giving an overview of the American Indians across the nation and the indigenous tribes of Nevada. Focus will be on the Northern Paiute, including the lands of the Comstock and surrounding areas as far as the California/Nevada border to the west.
Pam Abercrombie, before coming to the Comstock, worked on a rural Nevada Indian Tribe reservation for about eight years. Her love for history led her down a path of research on the indigenous people of Nevada. She spent three years studying our local tribes, in addition to federal/tribal relations and tribal nations across the United States, learning from non cross-cultural resources; therefore gaining knowledge from the American Indian’s perspective on North America and the United States.
Discover the history, interesting facts and information about the way of life of the Nevada Indians before the arrival of the white European settlers and colonists.
Pamela Abercrombie is the Executive Director of the Comstock Historical Foundation. She has developed a career in the nonprofit field the past 14 years, serving youth and families. She began as a program coordinator for a youth-serving organization in Dayton, transitioned to the Education Director for the Yerington Paiute Tribe where she became a self-taught administrator, and then after earning a Master’s in Public Administration fell in love with Virginia City and tourism. With an undergrad in history from the University of Nevada, Reno and a passion for history, becoming the director for the Foundation is a perfect fit.
