Shoshone Indians

According to the Shoshone, they received their name from the Chippewa's. They named this group of Chippewa's the Snake Indians or in Anishinabe, Gi-ne-big-o-ni-ni which really means Snake Man. Their name possibly signifies their clan or totem. In western Anishinabe, the word for snake is Gi-ne-wic. In eastern Anishinabe, it is Gi-ne-bic. Kennewick, Washington is a Chippewa word. And Kennebic is also a Chippewa word. Their Chippewa name is very similar to the Winnebago Chippewa's who are also known as the Win-i-big-o-shish who are actually Pillager Chippewa's. A large Reservation was set aside for the Winnebago on October 13, 1846. However, the United States refused to honor treaty and eradicated the large Reservation on February 27, 1855. Five days earlier, on February 22, 1855, they set aside a much smaller Winnebago Reservation adjacent to the old larger Reservation. It was known as Gull Lake Reservation. Brainerd, Minnesota is located on the old Chippewa Gull Lake Reservations eastside.

The Shoshone Tribe are just one of many lost Anishinabe Tribes. They are really Anishinabe. Below is a map of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation from the late 1880s. The Cheyenne are Algonquian! Their original homeland was located in the Montana-Wyoming region, and also included land in the Great Basin of the western United States, which includes California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah. Around 1,000 to 1,300 years ago, prophecy driven Anishinabe soldiers forced their way towards the west from the Great Lakes region, and brought nearly all of western North America under their control. They subjugated the native tribes of that region. One of those native tribes were the Ute people. Their language is classified as belonging to the Uto-Aztecan Language family which is partly Anishinabe and non Anishinabe. To be specific, the Shoshone Language is classified as Numic. Shoshone is probably derived from the Anishinabe word for southerner which is Shaw-an-ni. The whites dropped the "an" in Shawanni and simply pronounced the word as Shaw-ni. Simply drop the first "sho" in Shoshone and we get Sho-ne. Shaw-an is Anishinabe for south. It is not "sha-wan." Sho-ne and Shaw-nee!

According to Anishinabe author Andrew Blackbird, the Chippewa Language was extensively spoken among the Shoshone People. Blackbirds information about the Chippewa Language extensively spoken among the Shoshone People is on page 89 in chapter 11 of his book "History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan."

Of course, the whites were referring to the Anishinabe people when the topic of the Shoshone came up. They also used another name for the Shoshone and that was "Snake Indians" which signifies the whites considered them their enemy. Present day Shoshone People need to wake up to what the whites are corrupting. That be the Shoshone History! A late 19th century map below will help you learn the truth. It is of the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation. If you carefully look over the late 19th century map you will see the Northern Cheyenne Reservation adjoining the Crow Reservation. You will see "Nor Shoshone Ind Res" where "Nor Cheyenne Ind Res" should be written. Of course, the Cheyenne are another lost Anishinabe Tribe. They know they are Algonquian and originally lived in the Great Lakes region but they do not know that they are Anishinabe, as the Shoshone do not realize they are Anishinabe. Cheyenne is really the Anishinabe word for south which is Shawan or shaw-an.

When the first whites (they were Spanish) appeared in Shoshoni country, they eventually learned that two different peoples existed. One were the Anishinabe subjugators, while the other were Utes who were being subjugated by the powerful Anishinabe Nation. That occurred in possibly the early 17th century. White historians recorded that a large group of Shoshoni left their homes in the Montana-Wyoming region, and forced their way to the New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas region. They did so to battle the white (Spanish) invaders. They eventually brought the Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas region under Anishinabe control, and then they brought Mexico back under Anishinabe control by 1820. They are known as the Comanche and Wichita. After the whites invented the revolver, they wasted little time putting the new weapon to use against the Anishinabe Nation. The whites forced their way in to the east of Texas by 1836. By the 1850s, the whites had forced their way in to the California, Oregon, and Washington region and were commencing their invasion in to the country of the Shoshone. That be the Great Basin region.

In the early 1850s, the United States was deliberately causing trouble in Indian Territory (that was located in present day Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma) and it escalated into the so called 1861-1865 American Civil War. In the late 1840s up to the late 1860s, the whites fought a series of wars against the Anishinabe Nation located in the Great Basin and up in the Montana-Washington-Wyoming region. Once the whites became acquainted with the Great Basin region, they quickly grew to dislike the region and after the wars ended they thought it their best interest to set aside the entire Great Basin to be a huge Reservation for the Anishinabe Nation and their allies. Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming were included in that huge Reservation, as was western South Dakota. When these wars were being fought, the United States actively sought to form alliances with the Bannacks and Utes who were being subjugated by the Anishinabe Nation. Some of the Bannacks and Utes obviously joined the whites to help the whites destroy Native American Nations. It was not only the Bannacks and Utes the whites sought to form alliances with but also Sahaptians and Salish peoples. Many of them joined with white soldiers to help the whites destroy Native American Nations (themselves).

After the last wars (the 1876-1877 Black Hills and Nez Perce War, 1878 Ute War, and 1879 Sheepeater War) ended, peace came but the whites refused to honor treaty agreements with the Anishinabe Nation. The United States created the filthy 1887 Dawes Act which was created specifically to eradicate the Promised Land, or the huge Reservation the United States set aside in the Great Basin region and in the Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, western South Dakota and Washington region. Afterwards, many much smaller Reservations were set aside for the Anishinabek and the Utes, Sahaptians, and the Salish.
