Description

Cemetery notes and/or description: The Stewart Indian School established a cemetery for their students in the 1890s, shortly after the US Federal Government opened the school. The cemetery is now known as the "Old Stewart Indian Cemetery" or the "Dat-So-La-Lee Cemetery", after the master Washoe basket weaver who is buried there. Stewart students died from the Russian and Spanish flu epidemics and a myriad of childhood diseases that spread easily in the communal living arrangements at the school. About half of the marked burials are infants and children, and half are adults. Most of the stones are simple marble tablets but there are also a few wooden, concrete and sandstone markers, as well as numerous unmarked graves. In the 1940s, a new cemetery was established less than a mile to the west of the Old Stewart Indian Cemetery. This active cemetery is also called the "Stewart Cemetery" and sometimes confused with the old cemetery. Both cemeteries are on Washoe tribal property. [The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California and the Nevada Department of Transportation are collaborating on a project to document the Old Stewart Indian Cemetery. Most of the research presented here is a result of that project. The Washoe Tribe respectfully requests that a map showing the location of the cemetery not be included.]
