The Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe strives to promote and revitalize the traditional ways of life that are the very heart of our people. The task of preserving and maintaining the many aspects of the Toi-Ticutta’s native culture is indeed an ongoing struggle. The Cultural Program is proud to have the support of Tribal Council and other Tribal Members as it works to promote interest in tribal history, languages, the land, and to uphold the cultural values, goals, and traditions of the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe. Under this broad definition exists several individual projects and tasks that will help move the program forward in this mission.
The Cultural Program works with other Tribal, federal, and state agencies to protect cultural properties of importance to the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe.
The Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe is unique in history and culture. Our heritage is a blend of Paiute and Shoshone peoples. The Culture Program provides support for learning history, social customs, and traditions for tribal members and the community. These programs increase opportunities to learn arts and crafts, dances, songs, stories, traditional teaching and dress.
The Culture Program promotes the unique cultural identity and history of the Tribe. Program staff work on research and preservation of language, dance, celebrations, basketry and issues related to the documentation, protection and preservation of cultural resources within the homelands of the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe. The Cultural Resource Program also coordinates the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act issues on the local, regional, and national level.
From the fish we ate to our creation stories, the essence of the Toi-Ticutta people comes from the Wetlands. Today, the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribal Culture Department enhances and perpetuates the strong traditions of our Toi-Ticutta people through our customs and ways of life.
