TBH this is one of the reasons I'd prefer the Nez Perce, Arapaho, or even Lakota over the Comanche because, while Civ5's civ was certainly called the Shoshone and had a Shoshone leader...it seemed like a stealth representation of the Comanche, down to having a Comanche UU. (Or at the very least a hybrid Shoshone/Comanche civ. The Pathfinder was no doubt intended to be a nod to Sacagawea, who was Shoshone, and the extra territory could have been a nod to the sprawling Shoshone or to Comancheria. I always thought that was a neat ability, and I'm glad Russia picked it up in Civ6.)
Just to point out, only the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) have lived in the same place, according to their own oral tradition, for around 11,000 years. The Hinono'eino (Arapaho) were originally agricultural maize growers living in the modern Great Lakes region and Manitoba, driven west onto the plains in the 18th century by the Ojibwe, while of course the Lakota (Thithunwan) were only one of the Souian "Seven Council Fires" (Ochethi Sakowin) that were living in the upper Mississippi region and around Lake Superior by the 16th century, and may have earlier lived along the lower Mississippi and Ohio river valleys.
So, like the Comanche, the Lakota and Arapaho technically would start the game as entirely different groups in entirely different locations from their 'historical' placement and cultural attributes.
