Camp Verdes, Nev., is a remote desert outpost in Nevada’s high desert, where Native Americans, environmentalists, and conservationists gather for a weekly powwow, where people wear a traditional dress and talk about conservation.
Camp Verduros people have lived there for generations.
They are not alone.
Many people in the community are in awe of the rugged terrain and its potential to be a refuge for humans and animals.
The tribe is also trying to preserve the historic sites that were destroyed by mining in the 1980s and 1990s.
“We’re not a white people tribe,” said Nanae Fournier, a member of the tribal council who is a tribal historian.
Fournier said she has a very high opinion of the park and its history.
“I love the park.
I’ve been to it,” she said.
“And I’m so excited about it.”
“I love that it’s a refuge and a haven for Native people,” said Fourniers aunt, Leanna Williams, a tribal member.
In fact, Williams said she doesn’t want to see the park closed to mining.
“The mining industry was a part of that and we’re going to be there,” she told VICE News.
“We are not going to stop.
We are here and we will keep doing what we’re doing.”
The park was established in 1892 by the Navajo.
The reservation covers parts of southeastern Nevada, and it is one of the largest reserves in the United States.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, there are more than 5,000 known archaeological sites in Nevada, most of which were destroyed during the mining of copper, zinc, and other minerals in the 1800s.
These sites were located near the base of the Great Basin and along the Colorado River, and were also home to some of the oldest living humans.
At the park, the reservation has two main camps.
The first, called “The Wampanoag,” is a camp that has two campsites that are on the reservation’s west side, which is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Reno.
For the second camp, called The Pawnee, the camp has a different location and is located in the desert east of the reservation, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of Reno.
The Pawpeeis are a large tribe with a population of about 300.
They believe that the mining happened before the Uintah and Cheyenne tribes.
These tribes were the first to come to the reservation and were given a treaty by the United Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1846, and the tribe was given protection from mining operations until 1878.
While the mine was still operating, the tribe, along with the nearby Navajo Nation, took steps to preserve a few archaeological sites.
During the 1890s, the mining industry began blasting rocks from the Pawnees and Chexans mountains, and they began digging up old, white gold.
The Navajo and Pawnes were the only two tribes to be granted full rights to the land in the area.
By the 1950s, there were a few mining operations on the property, including a few by the University of Nevada.
Today, the Pawpees, who call themselves Pawnewees, and their supporters believe that mining and the use of chemicals in the mining process have led to a toxic legacy in the Paws.
A mining accident in 2015 exposed an estimated $1.5 million worth of copper ore into a creek.
In response, the Navajo Nation passed a resolution in 2014 that recognized that the land has cultural significance.
The tribe hopes that the tribe’s heritage can be preserved in the park because it is “not just a mining site.”
It’s not only the Pendants, however, who are hoping for the park to be preserved.
Earlier this year, the community held a camp for the tribe.
In October, the park was designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service.
