In historic times, economy consisted primarily of trade. Everyone, all individuals from all families, participated in trading anything from foods, seeds, baskets, horses, animals, salt, paints, and arts and crafts. Many people traveled on trails that covered all of Southern Paiute territory. Today, many Southern Paiutes still make crafts to trade or sell. Southern Paiutes make a living from tourism, ranching, mining, crafts, smoke shops, and government jobs.
