Tahoe Summer Home

Native people first lived along Lake Tahoe's shoreline over 9,000 years ago when retreating glaciers blocked most corridors to the lake.

Lake Tahoe came to be the center of traditional Washoe life. Their legends describe every aspect of the landscape.

During the spring and summer all the Washoe people gathered around Lake Tahoe's shore. When families arrived they held blessing ceremonies, renewing their spirit in this sacred place.

This was a time to hunt, fish, and gather plants for food, medicine, clothing and tools, and to prepare for the winter ahead. It was also a time to play games and socialize with other Washoe families.
