      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.
