    Wovoka (Jack Wilson) ~ Paiute


    Wovoka was the Paiute mystic whose religious pronouncements spread the Ghost Dance among many tribes across the American West. HHe was known as the messiah to his followers.
    Wovoka was born in Western Nevada, in what is now Esmeralda County, around 1856. At about the age of fourteen his father died, leaving Wovoka to be raised by the family of David Wilson, a nearby white rancher.
