When I was living and working in Reno in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I was honored to meet many great Native Nevadan leaders who were fighting for their tribal sovereignty, treaty, land, water, and human rights. One of those leaders was James "Buddy" Vidovich who was then the Chairman of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe.

In the course of discussing the recent rise of anti-Indianism in northern Nevada and local border town racism, Buddy said that there was a white hate group in nearby Fernley that called itself "S.O.A.P." which stood for Stomp Out All Paiutes. The deliberate use of the word "SOAP" obviously refers to the ethnic cleansing of an entire tribal nation.
