The Summit Lake Reservation is the most remote Indian reservation in Nevada. Located in the upper left hand corner of Nevada, the Reservation is 50 miles south of the Oregon border and 70 miles east of the California border 

All of the Tribe's departments have one goal: to protect the Reservation's resources. The Natural Fiery Department is quite active with a wide array of programs funded through various Federal agencies.  All Departments assert the Tribe's sovereignty in protecting the environment, natural resources, and public health of the Summit Lake Indian Reservation and the Tribe's traditional territory where Tribal members still retain rights to hunt, fish, gather traditional foods, medicine, and conduct spiritual and religious practices.
