Only a tiny southernmost corner of Nevada falls in the Southwest Border area. But Nevada does have Native Indian populations in almost all of its counties, and it has huge numbers of Latinos, both in the north and the south of the state. There are 4 Indian reservations in Nevada, and there are 3 native tribes local to the area. These are the Shoshone, the Paiutes, and the Washoe. The first two are related, but the last is unlike any other tribe in customs and language, and are famous for their basketry.

Nevada has two counties where poverty levels exceed 15%. This makes Nevada a lot better off than its neighbors Utah and Arizona, who both have counties with over 25% poverty. Nevada’s Las Vegas definitely ranks alongside Phoenix, Tuscon, and Albuquerque in population growth.
