The Reno area draws so many people for so many different reasons that it really is impossible to stereotype or pigeonhole anyone here. And these people have been the subject of newspapers, magazines and other articles since before Nevada gained its statehood — just see what Mark Twain had to say about the region! That tradition is carried on still today as our local writers cover the folks who give Reno its character. You might read about the history of the Basque shepherds and learn where in town to get the best Picon Punch. Perhaps you'll check out a piece on Reno's Native American heritage and the annual Numaga Indian Days Pow Wow, hosted by the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony. Maybe what catches your eye will be a profile on the people behind the ever-popular pub crawls that have taken over the city or an award-winning recipe from the famous Rib Cook-off. Why is Reno the new tech hub of the West? What's being done to preserve the historic buildings downtown? How fast is our community growing, and where are the new people coming from?
