Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada (ITCN) - Nevada

Nevada is home to four major Nations, the Goshute, Paiute, Shoshone, and Washoe (NAA, 257-259). They are dispersed throughout the state in 18 reservations and colonies (AID, 41-42) that range in area from 20 to 477,000 acres and in population from 6 to 1,000 residents (ibid.., 41).

Based in the town of Sparks, the Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada (ITCN) is an organization of these Tribes and colonies. It was formed under Nevada law as a nonprofit corporation in February 1966 to provide administrative economies of scale and to give the small Nevada Tribes a single large community voice. The ITCN's Executive Board comprises the chairmen of the eighteen tribal units within the state.

The Flag

The ITCN flag is orange with the organization's emblem in the center: a blue map of Nevada, edged in white with a yellow circle in its center. On the circle in black is "ITC" for Inter-Tribal Council. Behind the state map is a pair of crossed tomahawks in natural colors, from each hangs a single feathers. Arching over the top of the emblem "inter-tribal council", while below is "of nevada", all in blue lower-case letters.
