Home on the Rez

No, the rez is not my home, but I do like visiting Shoshone communities a whole lot. This time, I ventured out to Duckwater, Nev., about an hour west of Ely, for a language-teaching workshop. We’d make the drive to the reservation each morning and spend our daylight hours working with residents interested in language learning and language teaching. Then, since there are no accommodations in Duckwater, we’d head to Ely for city livin’. And since there really isn’t a whole lot in terms of structures out in that part of Nevada, my journey brings you photos of mostly cows and big open spaces. Fun fact: If you hit a cow in Nevada, you have to pay the rancher who owns it its estimated value. Except black cows, for some reason. Those are free.
