The Reno-Sparks Indian Colony is an urban Native American Tribe whose members have Washoe, Paiute and Shoshone heritage. The Tribe has a colony in central Reno, Nevada and a reservation (39°41′31″N 119°44′44″W / 39.69194°N 119.74556°W / 39.69194; -119.74556) in Hungry Valley, which is about 17 miles north of Reno.

The colony started out as a neighborhood in Reno where Native Americans who worked in local businesses and ranches lived. Under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, these people formed a tribal government. The Tribe was later granted land in Hungry Valley for a reservation.
