My tribe is the Shoshoni Indians.
These Indians lived in the plains of Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana with tall grass, valleys, and mountains.
They made their homes out of branches, animal hides, poles, or dug shelters out of hillsides and were called teepes.
In the summer they wore little clothing. Men wore loinskin, women wore aprons. In the winter they made warm robes out of rabbit hair and other kinds of fur. Some clothes had colorful beads also.
The men did the hunting, fished, also served as chiefs, or leaders of the bands. Women raised the children and also gathered plants. Children gathered plants with women and prepared it.
The Shoshoni’s ate plants, buffalo, wild sheep, antelope, squirrels, birds, salmon, roots, seeds,and berries.
Shoshoni Indians did not punish or spank the child because they thought it would break the young peoples spirits. Shoshoni’s believed and worshiped a man named “Duma Appa’h” like we worship and believe in GOD. Shoshoni men and women were allowed to have more than one marriage partner at a time. The Shoshone’s had no written language or formal schools. Shoshoni’s ate GRASSHOPPERS!! I liked researching on these Indians.
