Nevada is home to many diverse traditions. Some were transported here from other regions or countries and have become interwoven with Nevada’s cultural landscape and identity; some flourish on Native American tribal lands; others developed locally with occupational groups. Folklorist Pat Atkinson, Folklife Program Director with the Nevada Arts Council, will take you on a guided tour of Nevada traditions.
Through field recordings, photographs, objects, and video, you will meet some of Nevada’s diverse master traditional artists and experience traditional celebrations.
