Description

Darlene Hooper Dewey is a Western Shoshone who was born and raised in Yomba, Nevada.  She gives a detailed account about how and when contact between the indigenous and immigrants took place, and how many of the Shoshones worked for many of the immigrants on the ranches or homesteads.  Darlene then tells us about her family and others within the area and the creation of Yomba reservation as part of the Indian Reorganization Act (1934), and how the families purchased cattle.  She also speaks about the history of the Fandangos, and the different types of native plants and their uses.  Darlene then speaks about her Great-grandfather - Kawich - and how he was honored by becoming the name of her business.  Dewey also tells us about the archeological importance of Nellis Air Force Base.
