Michael Reber 2/9/11 Native American Music Review #9 The Great Basin The Great Basin Indians inhabited Utah and Nevada and parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and California as well as northern parts of Arizona and New Mexico. The drying out of the area from the fourteenth century on made it hard for sustainable agriculture and many people of this area turned to hunter-gatherer lifestyle. The Fremont people for example moved into small family groups who hunted antelope and rabbits. Other tribes of the Great Basin area include the Numic speakers of the Paiutes, Shoshones, Bannocks, Utes and Kawaiisu tribes. The introduction of the horse from the Europeans added bison hunting to the traditional lifestyles of the Utes and Shoshones. These people began to use chiefs to coordinate buffalo hunts and to deal with enemies they encountered. The introduction of the horse and guns from the Europeans gave some tribes an advantage over others and tribes and with these advantages captured slaves to be sold to the Europeans.
