These are respectful words from the Numu language for our elders. The Numu known as the Paiute Nation have different sounds in the words but the meaning is the same. Our goal is to obtain testimony from elders throughout the Paiute Nation so that our young people know who they are and the sacrifices that were made so we can be who we are and our ties to the land.
