Oral history interview with Laura Stark Rainey, Western Shoshone from Ely, NV on 05/28/2014

Description

Laura Stark Rainey is a Western Shoshone from the Ely Shoshone Tribe part of the Western Shoshone Nation.  Laura took us on a tour of the Cave Lake State Park and surrounding areas describing the hunting and gathering practices of the Western Shoshone.  She also tells us of the U.S. Calvary and the Spring Valley or Swamp Cedar Massacre, as well as other interactions with the Shoshone and the government.  And in extension how much of the land has been taken into BLM or federal hands.  She also speaks about her ambition to start a heritage center devoted to the Shoshone.  She ends her oral history by telling us about her life, her husband, and her education in engineering.
