The Northern Utes
By Tammy Scarbrough
  

1     You may wonder where Utah first got its name. It was named for the Ute Indians, who call themselves "The People." The Ute people were the first to live in that desert state.
 
2     The Utes hunted large animals such as deer, buffalo, and antelope. They also fished in Utah Lake where there was plenty of fish to go around. The women gathered nuts and berries for food. Both men and women kept their hair long and, oftentimes, braided. They made beautiful baskets in which to carry their food or belongings.
 
3     Around the late 1600s, the Spanish explorers came to the area in which the Utes were living. The tribe was able to get some horses from the explorers. Before then, the Ute people had walked everywhere they went. The horses made it much easier and faster to hunt and gather food.
