AbstractThe Pahrump Band of Southern Paiute is an Indigenous group in southern Nevada that is not formally acknowledged by the United States government. This status was in part created by the production of space within the colonial system, through both cartographic and written texts. This thesis examines both the process of colonial space making around the Pahrump Band, and exposes the problems created by this process. Finally, a discussion is offered as to the value of re-presenting the spaces of the Pahrump Band in order to achieve political participation.
