Subject

ITCN (Inter-tribal Council of Nevada) Cultural Workshop with Harold Miller a Walker River Paiute from Reno, and Raymond Hofer a Walker River Paiute from Yerington on 11/12/2007

Description

Harold Miller from Yerington, NV and Raymond Hofer from Walker Paiute Tribe speak about the history of the Ghost Dance as it had been taught by Wovoka (main character within this narrative) a Paiute medicine man. They explain the creation, outlawing, and revitalization of the Ghost Dance and how it moved from outside Paiute country and was assimilated into other tribes. Moreover, they explain how those other tribes helped to bring it back to where the Ghost Dance originated from. Harold also speaks about certain customs and traditions which have not been practiced as diligently by recent generations, and warns the audience about the consequences of not doing so.
