Camp Kwiyamuntsi is a STEM and culture camp for Southern Paiute youth. This year, middle school students from five bands came together for four days of fun and learning on ancestral homelands now managed by federal agencies. Campers learned about natural resources management from western and tribal perspectives. Learning stations included wildlife biology, archaeology, wilderness survival, hydrology, astronomy, ethnobotany and fire ecology with emphases on native language, traditional use, education and career paths.
