Tocmetoni ~ Sarah Winnemucca | Nevada Writer’s Hall of Fame

Sarah Winnemucca (1844?-1891), a granddaughter of Paiute Chief Truckee and daughter of Chief Winnemucca, was born in the Humboldt River-Pyramid Lake region at a time of great change for the Northern Paiute Nation. Introduced to Caucasians at age six, she could speak five languages by age 14, including Spanish and several Indian dialects. She became fluent in English while living for awhile with the Ormsby family at Mormon Station (now Genoa, Nevada) and took the name “Sarah” during that time. In 1871, Winnemucca began working as an interpreter for the Bureau of Indian Affairs at Fort McDermitt on the Oregon border. She married her first husband, Lt. Edward C. Bartlett, that year.

And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
