Ute Mountain Ute Tribe

About the Tribe

In the Southwest, where the current states of Utah, Colorado and New Mexico lie, the Ute people have roamed and dwelled for ages. The Utes were a nomadic people made up of various yet ethnically related bands of American Indians. Some of the larger bands included the Moache, Capote, Uncompahgre, White River, Uintah, Pahvant, Timanogots, San Pitch, Moanumts, Sheberetch and Weeminuche. The present day Ute Mountian Utes are descendants of the Moache and Weeminuche bands.
