Ku Stevens

American Trails and PTBA are excited to announce Ku Stevens as one of our keynote speakers for the International Trails Summit. Ku is a Reno local Citizen of the Year and organizer of the Frank Quinn Remembrance Run every summer. Frank Quinn was Ku’s grandfather who was taken from his Paiute family near Yerington, Nevada and boarded at the Stewart Indian School in Carson City. He escaped several times and ran 50 miles, crossing the Carson River and the Pine Nut Mountains, to get back to his home. The Remembrance Run follows Frank's route, creating a direct connection to his experience.
