There were three major bands of Northwestern Shoshone at the time the first Mormon pioneers begannorthern Utah. Chief Little Soldier headed the misnamed “Weber Ute” group of about 400, whoWeber Valley down to its entry into the Great Salt Lake. Chief Pocatello commanded a similarof Shoshone, who ranged from Grouse Creek in northwestern Utah eastward along the northernof Great Salt Lake to the Bear River. The third division of about 450 people, under Chief Bear, resided in Cache Valley and along the lower reaches of the Bear River. Bear Hunter was regardedthe principal leader of the Northwestern Shoshone, being designated by Mormon settlers as the warwho held equal status with Washakie when the Eastern and Northwestern groups met.

What became the Northwestern Band of Shoshone were parts of those groups who traveled largely onliving off the land in a delicate balance. The expression So-so-goi means “Those Who Travel on,” this expression was used to describe the band.

The Northwestern Shoshone traveled with the changing season. They looked upon the earth not justa place to live; in fact, they called the earth their mother—she was the provider of all they needed forlivelihood. The mountains, streams, and plains stood forever, they said, and the seasons walked aannually. The So-so-goi believed all things came from Mother Earth.
