Oral history interview with Dave McKinney, Western Shoshone from Duck Valley Reservation (Owyhee, NV-ID), on 11/30/2006

Description

Dave McKinney is a Western Shoshone and was born in Gold Creek, NV in 1907, and currently resides at the Duck Valley Reservation (Owyhee). His parents were Bill and Sadie McKinney. He was one of six children: 1 older sister and 4 younger brothers. He begins his oral presentation by describing how the Chinese emigrants living in Gold Creek use to pan mine gold. He also speaks about how he used to trap coyotes and sell their fur, stack hay for 2 dollars and fifty cents a day, and then how he worked for the Conservation Corps building roads. Dave also tells us about how he worked on many community projects around Duck Valley Reservation such as the Wild Horse Dam and the canal within the reservation as well as becoming a cattle rancher. He also speaks about the Fandango and the accompanying hand games and foot races – particularly about Race Harney.
