Historical Marker #151

Located along State Route 225 in Owyhee, Nevada.

Duck Valley Indian Reservation

Established in 1877 by President Rutherford B. Hayes, this reservation is situated on the ancestral lands of the Western Shoshone Indians.

The reservation includes 400 square miles in Nevada and Idaho and is home to Northern Paiutes as well.

Peaceful and cooperative, the residents have developed their culture from stone age levels to contemporary America, but many still retain ancient handicraft skills. Most residents are ranchers producing hay, wheat and cattle.

Duck Valley Indian Reservation is governed by the Shoshone-Paiute Tribal Council elected by the residents.
