Description
Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt
Excerpt: The United States of America is preparing to take full and absolute control over a territory extending some 24 million acres which has been the historic homelands of Newe Sogobia. By its own decision, the government of the United States has come to agree with the Western Shoshone people that the territory of their homelands which is surrounded by the United States of America is separate from the United States and still under the original ownership of the Western Shoshone. The United States government wishes to purchase all of Western Shoshone territory for about eight-five cents per acre, and it seeks to pay Western Shoshone fifteen cents per acre for sixteen million acres of surface rights. On December 6, 1979 the United States government made this judgment and decided it would pay the Western Shoshone a little more than $26 million. At the contemporary interest rates prevailing from December 1979 to December 1985, each Shoshone individual would be paid an estimated $26,000. This would be a one-time-only payment by the United States of America, and if the Shoshone decided to distribute these moneys each person would receive what appears to be a windfall in U.S. money.
