Western Shoshone and Timbisha Shoshone culture is a
very important part of our government and people. This portion
of our website will serve as a reference to our traditional survival
skills practices, traditional entertainment, traditional food
preparation, traditional lands management, traditional language,
and traditional song & dance.
It is our intention to give you a better understanding as to who we
are and how our people survived the harsh winters and summers
of our vast homelands which encompass Inyo County, Kern County,
San Bernardino County, Nye County, Mono County, Esmeralda
County and Mineral County.
A variety of culture based multi-media and documents will be
available to you here.
The songs linked to the right of this page are just a few hand
game songs recorded for the tribe’s archives, provided by tribal
member Erick Mason.
