Panamint Tribe

Panamint Indians. A Shoshonean division formerly occupying a considerable area in and around Panamint valley, south east California and extending south in scattered rancherias toward Mohave river.  Henshaw found a few individuals living at the mining town of Darwin (Panamint) in 1883, and learned that about 150 still survived, scattered here and there, in the desert country east of Panamint valley.  It is uncertain whether their affinities are with the Ute-Chemehuevi or Mono-Paviotso group of Shoshoneans, but are here placed tentatively with the former.  The Matarango are mentioned as a subdivision.
