the Ute Indians; of the Shoshone Indian linguistic stock, were originally divided into seven nomadic, and forest-dwelling tribes which lived on vast territory in Colorado and parts of Utah and northern New Mexico prior to he arrival of the European settlers; they were the Capote, the Mouache, the Parianucs, the Tabeguache, the Uintah, the Weeminuche, and the Yampa.  Ute, which means "land of the sun" also gave the state of Utah its name. 

There are currently around 3500 Ute Indians living on reservations in Utah, they own 1,300 000 acres of land on which they operate their own government, exploit their own resources,  and continue to promote their heritage.
