Step 1: Name/Language of Utah’s Native American Tribes Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits Teacher’s Page Step 2 Step 1 task: Tribal names are a very important part of the tribe cultural. Your first assignment is to complete the section of your journal labeled: Step 1. This will help guide you on the creation of your Tribe name. These are the links you will use for Step 1: 1. Ute Tribe Language Ute Tribe Language 2. Navajo Tribe Language Navajo Tribe Language The Ute Tribe has had a major influence on the state of Utah. In fact, the name Utah comes directly from the Ute Tribe. “Ute” comes from the Spanish word “Yuta” which means: the people. The Navajo Tribe is also known as the Diné Tribe, it is the second largest tribe in North America. The name Navajo means: the people.
Step 2: Traditions of Utah’s Native American Tribes Step 3 Every culture has a set of traditions. Think about the traditions that are held by your own family. Often, traditions have a large affect on a tribe’s arts, dances, stories, etc… The Ute Tribe is best known for their tribal dances, in particular the Sundance Ceremony. Dancers go without food and liquids for 4 days. This Ceremony actually has a huge spiritual background and family participation is essential. The Navajo Tribe has a weaving tradition that is passed from mother and daughter. The wool used for the weaving comes from the Churro sheep- which are raised from birth by the tribe members. The finished weaved blankets each have one flaw in them for the spirit of the blanket to roam. Step 2 task: Traditions are a way for the tribe to share their beliefs. Your next assignment is to complete the section of your journal labeled: Step 2. This will help guide you on the creation of your Tribe Artwork. These are the links you will use for Step 2: 1.

Step 3: Arts/Crafts of Utah’s Native American Tribes Step 4 Arts and Crafts are the cherished handicrafts created by the Tribe. They come in many forms and mostly represent things from nature. Usually the tools and materials used for the arts/crafts come from nature. There have been many Ute arts and crafts discovered and preserved. One of the most interesting artifacts is the ceremonial rattle made from buffalo rawhide which was filled with clear quartz crystals found in the mountains of Utah. The Navajo Tribe has many different forms of arts and crafts that it is known for: rugs, basketry, and silver are just a few. Their high quality and distinctive designs are recognized throughout the world. Step 3 task: Tribes utilize parts of nature to construct wonderful pieces of artwork.

Step 4: Dances/Music of Utah’s Native American Tribes Step 5 Dance and Music are a very large part of any culture, especially Native American culture. Many times it represents religious/spiritual beliefs of the Tribe. Sadly, some of the Native American Tribe dances, songs, and chants have been lost over the years. Every spring the Ute Tribe members perform a dance they call the Bear Dance. The Bear Dance is the oldest dance in the Tribe’s history. The dance was created by the Ute Tribe and is used for mating and courtship. The Navajo Tribe actually performs many ritual dances throughout the year. Some of the dances performed are: The Medicine-Man Dance, The Squaw Dance, and The Mountain Chant. Step 4 task: Tribes have dances, songs, and chants to represent their tribal beliefs.

Step 6 Step 5: Dwellings/Locations of Utah’s Native American Tribes The Ute Tribe originates from the states that are now: Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Nevada. The Ute Tribe still lives in these areas today. The closest area to use is the Reservation that is in the Uintah Basin. The Ute Tribe lived in small, round or cone-shaped houses called “Wickiups”. Some of the Eastern Ute Tribe members lived in Tipis. The Navajo Tribe was more spread out than the Ute Tribe. However, they are the second most known tribe in our state. Their dwellings were called “Hogans”. A Hogan is made of a special wood framework packed with clay into the earth, with the door facing east. This was set up to protect the inhabitants from sand and wind storms. Step 5 task: Your next assignment is to complete the section of your journal labeled: Step 5. This will help guide you on the creation of your Tribes Dwelling or Location. These are the links you will use for Step 5: 1. Ute Map Ute Map 2. Navajo Map Navajo Map 3. Ute Houses Ute Houses 4. Navajo Houses Navajo Houses
Step 6: Modernization of Utah’s Native American Tribes Evaluation Assimilation into American culture has been a hard task for all Native American Tribes. Both the Ute and Navajo Tribes have had a tough time keeping all of their historical aspects while creating a new modern lifestyle. They mostly live on reservations in modern housing. They still participate in special ceremonies and traditions. Due to the American persecution of Indians- a lot of the complex traditions, stories, and beliefs were lost forever. The Tribes do their best to preserve what they have left. Step 6 task: Your next assignment is to complete the last section of your journal labeled: Step 6. This will help guide you on thinking about your tribe in modern times. There are no links for this task, just questions to answer in your journal.
