The Paiute-Shoshone Tribe of the Fallon Reservation and Colony is a federally recognized tribe of Northern Paiute and Western Shoshone Indians in Churchill County, Nevada.[1] Their autonym is Toi Ticutta meaning "Cattail Eaters."[2]


The Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe has a federal reservation, the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Reservation, at 39°31′16″N 118°37′03″W / 39.52111°N 118.61750°W / 39.52111; -118.61750, in Churchill County. The reservation was established in 1887 and is 5,540 acres (22.4 km2). In 1990, 356 tribal members lived on the reservation. In 1992, 900 people were enrolled in the tribe.[1] Closer in to the city of Fallon is the smaller and geographically detached Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Colony, at 39°29′05″N 118°45′38″W / 39.48472°N 118.76056°W / 39.48472; -118.76056, which has two separate sections that lie between downtown Fallon and Fallon Municipal Airport, northeast of the city.
