More fire victims
While Lake Tahoe victims of the recent wildfires have received substantial support from local communities, other wildfire victims have been less publicized. Fires in eastern Nevada have done great damage to Nevada tribes. Fifteen hundred Shoshone and Paiute familes were affected in some measure or lost power, water and food. More than a half-million acres of land have been damaged.
Great Basin Bank in Elko has set up a fund to aid the tribes. The address for contributions is Great Basin Bank, Attn: Angie Thomas, P.O. Box 2808, Elko, NV 89801.
