Ute Mountain Ute Tribe

:"Also see: Ute Tribe."

The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe is one of three federally-recognized tribes of the Ute Nation, mostly of the Weeminuche Band. They are headquartered at Towaoc, Colorado.

The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe are descendants of the Weminuche band who moved to the western end of the Southern Ute Reservation in 1897 (ironically, under the leadership of Chief Ignacio, for whom the eastern capital is named). Their reservation is located in and around Towaoc, Colorado, southwest of Cortez, and includes small sections of Utah and New Mexico, and one of the Four Corners. The Ute Mountain Tribal Park abuts Mesa Verde National Park and includes many Anasazi ruins. The White Mesa Community of Utah (near Blanding) is part of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe but largely autonomous, and includes small parcels of land scattered throughout San Juan County, Utah.
