Part 1, 2005 Numaga Pow wow Native American Indian teen male Northern Traditional style dancing.
Numaga was the chief during the last major conflict between the whites and the Indian people in the United States. He led the Paiute people during the Pyramid Lake Indian war.
Some white men had kidnapped two Indian girls and held them in a root cellar. When an Indian was going by he heard their cries and a group of Indians rescued them, but killed the men that held them. In response to the Indians killing the kidnappers the whites formed an army and attacked the Indians at Pyramid Lake in Nevada. The Paiutes BEAT the military, and later on they signed a peace treaty. Numaga was called the "Peace Chief" and we honor him with this pow wow.
The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony holds this Pow wow and the Colony is made up of Paiute, Washoe, and Shoshone people of Nevada.
