Re-opening soon! Check back with us!

The Stewart Indian School served as the only off-reservation Indian boarding school in Nevada from 1890 through 1980, and its stone buildings are an icon of education and life for many American Indians in the West. In 1985 the school was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District and is currently managed by the State of Nevada.

We are excited to announce that the former Stewart Administration Building is now renovated into the new Stewart Indian School Cultural Center and Museum, thanks to funding by Governor Brian Sandoval and the Nevada State Legislature. Source:

In addition to the Stewart Indian School, many cultural events celebrating the American Indian heritage, history and pride are held in Carson City throughout the year. The Father’s Day Pow Wow brings the Stewart Indian School to life again with hundreds of dancers, Native American art, Native American crafts, and famous Indian Tacos.

UPDATE: Unfortunately due to COVID-19 the Father’s Day Powwow is cancelled and the grand opening will be postponed to a later date. Stay tuned form more information.
