History of The Winnemucca Shoshone Sovereign Indian Nation


The Winnemucca Indian Colony is the part of Sovereign Shoshone Indian Nation. Shoshone, also spelled Shoshoni, also called Snake is the North American Indian group that occupied the territory from what is now southeastern California across central and eastern Nevada and northwestern Utah into southern Idaho and western Wyoming.
The Shoshone of historic times were organized into four groups: Western Shoshone, centered in Nevada, Northern Shoshone of northern Utah and Idaho, Wind River Shoshone in western Wyoming and Comanche in western Texas. The Shoshone Nation language is a central Numic Language of the Uto-Aztecan family.
The Winnemucca Indian Colony of Nevada is a federally recognized tribe of Western Shoshone and Northern Paiute Indians in Northwestern Nevada.

The Sovereignty of Indian Nations


  •  The Winnemucca Shoshone Indian Colony is a Sovereign Native American Indian Nation with Sovereign Immunity: 

The GIDBANK is the Central Bank of The Winnemucca Shoshone Indian Colony and has Sovereign Immunity.  Tribal sovereignty in the United States is the concept of the inherent authority of indigenous tribes to govern themselves within the borders of the United States. The U.S. federal government recognizes tribal nations as "domestic dependent nations" and has established a number of laws attempting to clarify the relationship between the federal, state and tribal governments. Empowerment of tribal courts, 1883 On April 10, 1883, five years after establishing Indian police powers throughout the various reservations, the Indian Commissioner approved rules for a "court of Indian offenses." 

  • Indian Reorganization Act, 1934

In 1934 the Indian Reorganization Act, codified as Title 25, Section 476 of the U.S. Code, allowed Indian nations to select from a catalogue of constitutional documents that enumerated powers for tribes and for tribal councils. Though the Act did not specifically recognize the Courts of Indian Offenses, 1934 is widely considered to be the year when tribal authority, rather than United States authority, gave the tribal courts legitimacy. 

  • Nation to nation: tribes and the federal government.

When the United States government formed, it replaced the British government as the other sovereignty coexisting in America with the American Indians Technically, Congress has no more power over Indian nations than it does over individual states. In the 1970s Native American self-determination replaced Indian termination policy as the official United States policy towards Native Americans. Self-determination promoted the ability of tribes to self-govern and make decisions concerning their people. It has been argued that American Indian matters should be handled through the United States Secretary of State, the official responsible for foreign policy. The idea that tribes have an inherent right to govern themselves is at the foundation of their constitutional status the power is not delegated by congressional acts. Congress can, however, limit tribal sovereignty. Unless a treaty or federal statute removes a power, however, the tribe is assumed to possess it. Current federal policy in the United States recognizes this sovereignty and stresses the government-to-government relations between Washington, D.C. and the American Indian Tribes.
