Abstract

The Northwestern Shoshone Indians is the tribe of Indians that inhabited the territory north of the Great Salt Lake comprising the northern part of Utah and the Southern part of Idaho. The Indians have loose boundary lines, yet we can definitely state that this tribe occupied the territory from the Weber river on the South to the Snake river on the North: from Bear Lake and the Bear river on the East to Raft river and Goose creek on the West. Their confines would take in Weber, Rich, Box Elder, Cache, and part of Morgan, counties in Utah: and Bear Lake , Caribou, Cassia, Oneida, Franklin, Bonneville, parts of Power, Minidoka, Bingham, counties in Idaho.
