(note to those who may come after me/the admins: most of these External Links with links to general Shoshone information pages are broken or inaccessible, a review seems necessary, and possibly some new links that work, I will of course do my part if I find any)
All but one of the Shoshone tribes called themselves "Shoshone" not "Shoshoni," I'm going to restore this page, since there was no discussion about the name change here (the language can stay "Shoshoni," if that's what linguists prefer). There is one exception: Northwestern Band of Shoshoni Nation of Utah (Washakie).
From the Federal register: Duckwater Shoshone Tribe of the Duckwater Reservation, Nevada, Ely Shoshone Tribe of Nevada, Fort McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribes of the Fort McDermitt Indian Reservation, Nevada and Oregon, Shoshone Tribe of the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming, Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of the Fort Hall Reservation of Idaho, Te-Moak Tribe of Western Shoshone Indians of Nevada, Yomba Shoshone Tribe of the Yomba Reservation, Nevada, etc. Tribal websites: Shoshone-Bannock Tribe, Eastern Shoshone Tribe, Eli Shoshone Tribe, etc. -Uyvsdi (talk) 18:00, 16 February 2011 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Essay from main article space
This uncited essay was added to the article by IP user: 126.96.36.199 talk: The Timbi-Sha Shoshone Tribe has been living in Death Valley for more than forty thousand years. The Shoshone still live in Death Valley today. In 20,000 BC The Shoshone population was 4,500 Indians. The Shoshone lived in big families of aunts, uncles, cosines, 2nd cosines, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and parents. Not all Shoshone live in death Valley. There is also a Shoshone tribe of colorado.
Death Valley has a name that makes it people think that it's not a good place to live but that’s is not true. Death Valley has lots of rabbits, sheep and buffalos. Plants, animals, and water sources are very common in Death Valley. The Shoshone are partly nomadic because in the summer when Death Valley gets to be about 114°f the Shoshone have to move out. The Shoshone moved to cooler counties where the temperature is about only 100°f. After summer the Shoshone move back in to Death Valley. The Shoshone were lucky that they were accepted in other counties.
The Shoshone had lots of things to entertain them. The most common things they did were Lacrosse, horseback racing, and weaving baskets. Lacrosse was important to the Shoshone as they used the sport to salve problems with other tribes. The Shoshone and other tribes called Lacrosse The Creators game. The Shoshone people had many horseback races. The kids and adults did horseback races for fun or for ceremonies. Shoshone baskets are very colorful. They weave the basket tightly so the baskets can hold grain and other stuff. Sometimes the Shoshone put their babes in baskets.
The California Gold Rush affected the Shoshone. In 1848 when the gold fever started not a lot of miners came to Death Valley. The miners didn’t come because of the extremely hot weather. Lots of people got sunburn and sunburn hurt when mining. Also many people couldn't handle the extreme tempters. In about 1851 people stared striking rich in Death Valley so lots of miners came too Death Valley to hunt for gold. Once lot of miners came it was hard for the Shoshone to get their recourses. The gold 49ers kicked the Shoshone out. The miners were called 49ers because people started coming in 1849. During the Gold Rush people from all over the world brought diseases that killed many Shoshone. By the time the Gold Rush ended there was only about a 1,000 Shoshone left. Today there are only about 42 Shoshone.
The Shoshone still live today and 5,000 people that are not Shoshone speak the Shoshone language. The Shoshone are named after a rock found in Death Valley. The government now protects the Shoshone. Also the National Park Service preserves Death Valley because is home to the Shoshone and always will be. -Uyvsdi (talk) 18:59, 24 March 2014 (UTC)Uyvsdi
