In an era of emigrants, Mormon settlers and the military, Pocatello emerged as a strong leader of the the Hukenduka Shoshone.

Born after 1810, Pocatello claimed this area and surrounding territories as his homeland. He soon watched his people endure brutality and starvation. For retaliating, he was nearly hanged until President Lincoln intervened. After 1875, he lived a reservation life until his death around 1884. He was buried in a bottomless spring with 18 horses.
