Ute Unit: Study Guide and Follow Up Activities.
North Conejos School District, Capulin, CO.
The study guide and follow-up activities were designed primarily to give students a feeling of Ute life in the San Luis Valley in Colorado. The unit begins with six Southern Ute stories about the wolf and coyote, the race between the skunk and the coyote, the frog and the eagle, why the frog croaks, the bear (Que Ye Qat), and the two Indian brothers. A unit test consisting of listing, matching, and essay questions follows the stories along with a student evaluation form and a reference list of titles that are available on the Utes. The next section presents a chronology of Ute history beginning in 1 A.D. when the Shoshonean speaking people separated from other Ute-Aztecan groups about the beginning of the Christian era to 1972 when the Pino Nuche Purasa, motel-restaurant-community building complex, built by the Southern Utes at Ignacio was opened. The last section acknowledges the contributions and culture of the Utahs, the people referred to today as the Utes. (ERB)
