Creoles in Nevada?

I am researching information on information a journalist gave me last year for a course I am teaching in the Fall. Does anyone know where I
can research information about Creoles that helped to build the
Hoover Dam in Nevada. Evidently, many were imported from Louisiana. I
have been looking at books in Nevada and some of the builders of
Hoover Dam may have in fact been Creole and not Hispanic or Native
American as recorded. I would like to pursue this further.

Does anyone have suggestions?
