In his synopsis of the Indian tribes78
Gallatin’s reference to this great family is of the most vague and
unsatisfactory sort. He speaks of “some bands of Snake Indians or
Shoshonees, living on the waters of the river Columbia” (p. 120),
which is almost the only allusion to them to be found. The only real
claim he possesses to the authorship of the family name is to be
found on page 306, where, in his list 109 of tribes and
vocabularies, he places “Shoshonees” among his other families, which
is sufficient to show that he regarded them as a distinct linguistic
group. The vocabulary he possessed was by Say.
