Paiutes on the playa?

Weird connection..

I was reading a while ago that around a hundred and something years ago. tha Piautes were banding together with other tribes to resist the american cavalreys advancement and attacks. They went deep into the dessert and danced for 7 days straight to get right before battle...

Did they go to Zara?
got fire?

After the US govment took away the land, it basically became responcible for the feeding of the indians. They shipped them flour, as if breadmaking were completely obvious. (Talk about cultural blinders!) Frybread is what the indians invented to do with it.

I just love that story.

My sister told it better.


That's an interesting story, Cryp. I have no doubt that it's true, but they must have had some baking powder/sode and some fat/oil for the frying. Probably the whiteys didn't have dried yeast back then.

The Injuns I know prefer bologna sandwiches. :)

If anybody makes frybread tacos, be sure to save the WVO so it can be transformed into biodiesel.

I am the dental director of the Susanville Rez just over the mountains from BRC. I do not know of any Piutes from our area who are burners.
I do know that the Local Native Americans get discounted tickets as my friend at the Reno Indian colony can score discounted tickets.

a shoshone on the playa

Postby snake » Mon Aug 06, 2007 3:13 pm

i'm coming from the nearby rez of fallon. we're paiutes and shoshone. but i find for the most part, local indians suffer enough of the heat, dust, and winds of this environment...that the prospect of sitting out in the desert with a bunch of crazy white people....just isn't their cup of tea.
though a few do trickle through on occassion.
