      I believe that the modern decendents of the Piutes
      live on a reservation in Big Pine, CA which is located
      on SR 395 about 40/50 miles south of Bishop. They
      have a casino there (Piute Palace) that has the
      cheapest price for gasoline in the Eastern Sierra.

      The correct spelling of the tribe would be: Paiute. There is a small reservation in Bishop along with the casino and gas station. I believe there are also

        The correct spelling of the tribe would be: Paiute. There is a small
        reservation in Bishop along with the casino and gas station. I
        believe there are also Paiute Reservations in Nevada and Utah. Do a
        search for "Bishop Paiute" there are many hits. The Bishop Paiutes are
        descendants of the original peoples of Owens Valley called the Nu-Mu.

        Hope this helped.
