FPST Reservation and Colony

On this day in 1906, the federal government took back the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe’s original 160-acre allotments and exchanged them for 10 acre allotments with water rights, making the modern reservation and colony. (The Tribe would have to sue for these rights in the 1990s). This photo of the Reservation water tower was taken around 2000.
