Desert National Wildlife Refuge brochure reads:

The area now known as the Desert National Wildlife Refuge is the homeland of the Southern Paiute (Nuwuvi). Nuwuvi continue to visit this area and practice their culture as they did in the past. Agave is still gathered in the spring while pinyon pine nuts are collected in the fall. In the summer, domesticated plants such as corn and squash used to be grown along Corn Creek. Evidence of Nuwuvi interaction with the landscape is present at nuemerous cultural resource sites, such as agave roasting pits, rock shelters, camps, and locations with rock writing.
