The Ute
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The Ute people lived in the mountains of the West. The people did not live close to each other except in winter.
 
2     In the spring, the people would spread out. They went to their summer ground. Families would plant gardens. They grew squash to eat in the winter. They hunted meat. They made bison hides into leather. They made deer skins into clothes. They stored food for winter use.
 
3     In the fall, the people moved to sheltered places. Many families joined up there. Winter was a time for feasts. They got to visit together. It was often a time to get married.
 
4     At first, Utes lived in homes called wickiups. They looked like teepees covered with bark. They were hard to move. Later, they used bison hides to make teepees.
