The "Last Indian Massacre" took place in January 1911. An Indian nmaed Shoshone Mike and his band murdered four stockmen in Washoe County, Nevada, and on February 26, 1911 Nevada authorities caught up with Mike Daggett or Shoshone Mike's family, a nonreservation band of migrating Bannock in Humboldt County, Nevada. All but one of the adult members of the family, including Daggett, Sr., his 4 sons and three of their wives were killed in a firefight with the authorities. One adult woman and two children survived the firefight but by 1913 only the youngest still survived. One member of the posse was killed by the Indians
