Southern Ute

Because the Southern Utes and the Ute Mountain Utes share a common early history that is on the Ute page.

The Southern Utes are made up of two bands, the Mouache and Capote, with a population of 1,300.

Fishing, hunting, camping is permitted on their reservation, and ceremonies open to visitors are the social Bear Dance in June and the spiritual Sun Dance in August.

Delicate beadwork and leather artistry are the pride of the Southern Ute. The tribal capital is at Ignacio, CO, about 60 miles NE of Farmington. The museum there exhibits ancient artwork, artifacts, and photographs.
