- A Natural Way of Life
- By Bobby C. Billie, Spiritual Leader, 30 August 1994. I believe
in the natural way of life and never signed the peace treaty,
never gave up my rights of my way of life. But people of the
United States are trying to take my rights away and they are
trying to all those things I mentioned before to take their
rights away and destroy them. And they are trying to take all
my ancestors who have been put away the natural way.

- Linguistic expert says ancient Indian languages
- By Don Cox, Reno Gazette-Journal,
2 Janary 2002. William H. Jacobsen Jr. is the foremost expert
on the ancient and complex language of the Washoe tribe that
has occupied the Carson Valley region for thousands of years.
For centuries, Washoe had been a spoken language, and Jacobsen
learned to speak it fluently, and he wrote it down. He expects
the Washoe language to be overwhelmed by English, the dominant
language that surrounds it, in much the same way that other
tribal languages have been lost.
