Clearly, the use of Great Basin Shoshonean lifeways and material culture as models for predicting or interpreting the lifeways and material culture remains found in the Northeastern Great Basin subarea during the greater part of the Late Period is questionable. Models derived from studies of late prehistoric Northern Plains materials would appear to be more applicable in this subarea, but it is also obvious that such models by themselves are unlikely to predict the emergence and persistence of such cultural systems as the Great Salt Lake Fremont in northern Utah and southern Idaho.
