Spence "Dispossessing the Wilderness:  Indian Removal and the Making of the National Parks"  Chapter 4 on Yellowstone indicates the dispute continued from the 1870s through the 1890s and beyond, but mentions only a few armed conflicts and only one specific Indian fatality on July 13 1895.

I just read an article in the online journal Breakthrough that included a claim that used a citation in Mother Jones for corroboration.  I had never heard anything about this.  "Three hundred Shoshone Indians were killed in a single day during the expulsion from Yellowstone."

Mother Jones itself only uses the same statement, without any additional info.

I have no idea what they are talking about.  Yeah, I know.... Mother Jones... consider the source.
