Paiute

The Paiute were the main inhabitants of the Great Basin region of the western USA, from Arizona to Oregon, covering most of Nevada and Utah. The main Paiute groups are the Northern Paiute, who live in Northern Nevada and adjacent areas of Oregon, California, and Idaho (2,000 speakers out of 4,000 population), and the Southern Paiute, also called, more simply, Ute. The Ute live in southwestern Colorado and southeastern and northeastern Utah; the Southern Paiute in southwestern Utah, northern Arizona, and southern Nevada; and the related Chemehuevi (they speak another dialect of the same language) on lower Colorado River, California. There are some 2,000 speakers of Southern Paiute, out of 5,000 population. The Paiute speak lamguages of the Uto-Aztecan family. So far, we have a list of placenames in Southern Paiute.
