A tribe of approximately 1600, they occupy the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in Northeastern Utah. U.S. 40 traverses the Reservation through Duchesne and Roosevelt. The Uintah and Ouray Agency and Ute Indian Tribe headquarters are at Fort Duchesne, Utah, an abandoned military fort which was transferred to the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1912. At this time, the Uintah, Uncompahgre, and White River Bands joined together to form the Ute Indian Tribe. The headquarters are located approximately one mile south of U.S.40 on Utah Highway 88. Postcard shows Tribal members in the Uintah Basin Industrial Convention parade held annually at Roosevelt, in August.
