An offshoot of the Shoshone Nation, the Goshutes long maintained a territory in in Eastern Nevada and Western Utah, gathering wild onions, carrots and potatoes, and hunting small game in the mountains. Prior to first contact with European immigrants, the Goshute numbered close to 20,000 people
Today, there are than 500 Goshutes, living on two seperate reservations: The Skull Valley Reservation, created in 1912; and the Deep Creek Reservation, formed in 1914.
The name Goshute is derived either from the Shoshone term Gutsipupiutsi, which means Desert People.
