TEMOAK TRIBE – In 2007, the Te-Moak Tribe issued a “Proclamation for the Record” on the issue of claims signed by Chairman Davis Gonzales. In the proclamation, Gonzales writes “I do not wish to continue an on-going negative atmosphere or debate amongst our people who deserve and have the right to a peaceful existence, I hereby affix my signature on this Proclamation on this 12th day of March, 2007.”
Although the Duck Valley Tribe, Duckwater Shoshone Tribe, Ely Shoshone Tribe, and Fallon-Paiute Shoshone Tribe issued official Tribal Council resolutions concerning the important subject of Shoshone claims, the reason as to why the Te-Moak Tribe issued a proclamation rather than a Tribal Council resolution is unknown at this time. Further the proclamation seems to be a document of the Tribe, but the question remains as to why the proclamation is not part of the official record of the Tribe.
