A Sacred Gathering Place
Many generations of Washoe people spent summers here, living near the shores of Lake Tahoe. Known as >i>da ow a ga by the Washoe, the lake provided a sacred meeting place, where summer gatherings were a focus of Washoe life for thousands of years. The Washoe people continue to enjoy Lake Tahoe.

Summer Feasts
The Washoe often returned to the same campsites year after year, where familiar fishing and hunting grounds waited. The lake provided an abundance of fish, especially suckers and cutthroat trout. As the fishing season slowed, the Washoe hunted and gathered seeds, nuts and other foods.
