In July 2022 the Summit Lake Paiute Tribe held its first Paiute Language Class. We were fortunate enough to have our very own SLPT elder Thalia Dick and Duck-Valley member Judy Martin teach the class. 


Classes are held twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 12:00 pm PST. We offer both in person at 2255 Green Vista Dr. Suite 401 Sparks, NV 89431 and Zoom at the link below.

We welcome all ages and all levels of knowledge and you do not need to be tribally affiliated to participate.
