Newe are the Western Bands of the Shoshone Nation of Shoshonean people that include Comanche. Sogobia means Mother Earth, the home of "The People." Newe Sogobia extends from Mojave Desert to the Snake River in the Northern Great Basin. The Uto-Aztecan language derives from the Shoshonean language base, as Shoshonean people migrated south into Central America long ago.
During the American Civil War, the U.S. government sought an overland route to ship gold east so the Union north could prosecute a war against the Confederate south. The Shoshone signed right-of-way treaties such as the 1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley (consolidated Treaty Series Vol. 127 1863) , a "treaty of peace and friendship", and is part of the United States Constitution, as "the supreme law of the land".
The Shoshonean people have endured within our treaty defined country, yet many the majority of the people are internally displaced with their basic human rights denied. Even still, Newe will live freely within our our nation.
Newe face an high burden of illness, as the Nevada National Security Site and the proposed Yucca Mountain high-level nuclear waste epository lie in the heart of our country. The USA and the United Kingdom have detonated 1,149 WMDs spreading radiation across the globe.
