About this design
The Northern Ute SKY Shirts
The Northern Ute, and in particular the Uncompahgre Ute from Colorado, are exceptional artisans and produced extraordinary examples of religious and ceremonial beadwork, unusual art forms, and cunningly designed and decorated weapons of war in their traditional culture. The Ute obtained glass beads and other trade items from early trading contact with Europeans and rapidly incorporated their use into religious, ceremonial, and spartan objects.***************** Uncompahgre and Northern Ute beadwork are some of the finest examples of native American art produced in ancient and modern times by any of the Great Basin tribes.Like their Southern neighbors, the Dine' (Navajo), a large percentage of Northern Ute are members of the Native American Church and are active in peyote ceremonies. It was a Ute Medicine Man who first introduced Quannah Parker, founder of the Native American Church, to the use of peyote as a sacrament and healing medicine in the mid 1800s. Traditional Ute healers still use peyote to treat infections, and a variety of other plants, including Elk Root (Echninacea Angustifolia), Bear Root (Ligusticum porteri), and tobacco sage (Salvia Dorii). The Ute have integrated peyote religion into their culture, with the resulting artistic and expressive influences pervading their art and rich cultural and ceremonial objects. There is evidence the Ute have used peyote obtained through trade and other potent ceremonial plants used as entheogens since ancient times, such as the dried leaves of Larb (a species of Manzanita), Tobacco Sage (Salvia Dorii) collected from the Escalante area (a mild hallucinogen when smoked), and the potent and narcotic White Uinta Water Lily. Tobacco Sage (Salvia Dorii) was also brewed into a tea with Elk Root (Echinacea angustifolia), and the root of the Yellow Unita Water Lily and used to treat tumors and cancer (The Yellow Unita Water Lily is a toxic plant, and small amounts of the root can be used to strengthen the heart muscle in Utes with heart ailments. Large amounts are toxic). This preparation as been shown to reduce the effects of angiogenesis with certain cancers when administered as an admixture of these plants.Ute religious beliefs borrowed much from the Plains Indians after the arrival of the horse.*********** The Northern and Uncompahgre Ute were the only group of Indians known to create ceremonial pipes out of salmon alabaster, as well as a rare black pipestone found only in the creeks that border the Southeastern slopes of the Uinta Mountains in Utah and Colorado. Although Ute pipe styles are unique, they resemble more closely the styles of their Eastern neighbors from the Great Plains. The Black Pipestone is used not only to make ceremonial pipes, but also lethal war clubs that were used very efficiently from the back of a horse. The Ute have a religious aversion to handling thunderwood (wood from a tree struck by lightening) and believe that the thunder beings would strike down any Ute Indian that touched or handled such wood. This is also a Dine' (Navajo) belief. There is extensive evidence that contact between the two groups existed since ancient times.The Uncompahgre Ute Indians from Central Colorado are one of the first documented groups of people in the world known to utilize the effect of triboluminescence through the use of quartz crystals to generate light, likely hundreds of years before the modern world recognized the phenomenon. The Ute constructed special ceremonial rattles made from buffalo rawhide which they filled with clear quartz crystals collected from the mountains of Colorado and Utah. When the rattles were shaken at night during ceremonies, the friction and mechanical stress of the quartz crystals impacting together produced flashes of light which partly shone through the translucent buffalo hide. These rattles were believed to call spirits into Ute Ceremonies, and were considered extremely powerful religious objects.************** Several groups of Ute and Shoshone Indians were relocated to the Northern Ute reservation during the late 1800s and early 1900s, including the Northern Shoshone, Uinta, Uncompahgre Ute, Northern Ute, and Ouray Ute. The Northern Ute disfranchised the other Ute groups when they reorganized the Northern Ute Tribe during the mid 1900s, and gained control of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation as a result. Lawsuits and litigation have been commonplace between the mixed blood Utes and the Northern Ute Tribe for rights to tribal enrollment and privileges. The Northern Ute Tribe has a 5/8 blood quantum requirement for tribal membership, and have been accused by the mixed blood Utes of disfrancising their rights to tribal lands and equal treatement. Most of the mixed blood Utes live on the reservation and have lived on land holdings owned by particular families since the Federal Government forced relocations in the late 1800s. The Mixed blood Utes have recently applied for Federal Recognition and are involved in litigation with the United States and the Northern Ute tribe.
