The Moapa Band of Paiute Indians resides on the Moapa River Reservation. They are a recognized Indian tribe organized under a Constitution approved by the Secretary of the Interior on April 17, 1942.

The tribal lands originally set aside in 1874 consisted of two million acres, but in 1876 it was reduced to a thousand acres. In December 1980, under the Carter Administration, an additional 70,000 acres were provided. The current total land base is 71,954 acres.

The tribe’s primary business enterprise centers on the Moapa Paiute Travel Plaza, which includes a casino, convenience store, cafe, gas station, and firework store with the largest and most comprehensive selection of fireworks in the West.

Clue: Take I-15 towards Utah. Take Exit 75. You will see the Moapa Paiute Travel Plaza on your left. Continue 7.4 miles from the "fake" cattle guard that you crossed when you made the right hand turn from the exit. Just past milemarker 7, you will see a small dirt road on your right. It's in the first group of hills that you come to. Take this dirt road and go 0.1 mile and stop. On your left you will see two small Ironwood trees. Go to the second tree (or the one on your right). On the uphill side, behind the tree, you will find what you're looking for. It will be buried under a pile of rock. BE CAREFUL ... This tree is VERY STICKERY !!! It can draw blood....that's why the box is NOT near the trunk of the tree.

This area can be very warm in the summer... bring lots of water, wear a hat, and watch for things that bite, sting or rattle.....

This is a multi-sided stamp. You may want to have a variety of colors. Enjoy!!!!

UPDATE: 2-27-10...Today we did "box maintenance" and this box is well and good. Please record your finds!
