This Shoshone Ojibway Reservation is located in Idaho and Nevada. Below is a map of Duck Valley Reservation. They have lost their Ojibway Tribal Identity and will not accept an Ojibway Tribal Identity at this Reservation! Original name of this Reservation was Western Shoshone Reservation. Their history is one that has been written for them by whites which means you must use caution for we know whites use deceit! Duck Valley Reservation was created on April 16, 1877 after President Hayes used an Executive Order to establish this small Reservation. This Reservation was probably created for Shoshone Ojibway's that wanted out of 1876-1877's War in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Wyoming. They likely agreed to side with whites. As 1876-1877's War spread to extreme southern Idaho in 1878, many Ojibway's were captured and sent to Yakima Reservation. After Malhuer Reservation of Oregon was eradicated, many of their citizens were sent to Duck Valley Reservation. Duck Valley Reservation was expanded by President Cleveland after he used an Executive Order to expand Duck Vally Reservation on May 4, 1886 for some Ojibway's sent to Yakima Reservation. Duck Valley Reservation is obviously one of chief Rocky Boy's Reservations.
On July 1, 1910 President Taft used an Executive Order to expand Duck Valley Reservation. Whites living near this Reservation were definitely startled by the land additions. It was reported in 1920 that Western Shoshone Reservation had a population of 671. Census was possibly from 1910 however. Duck Valley Reservations population has increased quite a bit since then.
