Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation
Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation Review
The 1.3 million acres of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation spread out in patchwork fashion across the Uinta Basin and northeastern Utah to the eastern edge of the state. Fort Duchesne is the tribal headquarters for the Ute Indians. Because it's sometimes difficult to tell whether you're on reservation land, public land, or private land, you should stay on main roads unless you have permission to be on the reservation lands.
Each July 4 weekend the Northern Ute Pow Wow has drumming, dancing, and singing competitions, a rodeo, golf and softball tournaments, and an arts-and-crafts fair. One of the biggest powwows in the West, it's free to the public, who are welcome to attend and camp on the powwow grounds. Another, smaller powwow is held over Thanksgiving weekend at the tribal gymnasium in Fort Duchesne. 8 mi east of Roosevelt on U.S. 40, at Fort Duchesne turnoff, Fort Duchesne, 84026. 435/722–5141. www.utetribe.com.
