Winnemucca, (ca. 1820–1882) (also called Wobitsawahkah, Bad Face, Winnemucca the Younger, Mubetawaka, and Poito), was born a Shoshone around 1820 in future Oregon Territory. When he married the daughter of Old Winnemucca, he became a Paiute according to their tribal rules. His father-in-law honored him by naming him "Winnemucca the Younger". Winnemucca the Younger became a war chief with the Kuyuidika.
