History

In 1881, the Tabaquache (or Uncompahgre) Utes moved from the Uncompahgre Valley in Colorado to a reservation on the Green River in Utah, next to the Uintah Reservation. The Los Pinos Agency, to which they were assigned, was changed to the Ouray Agency. In 1886, the Uintah Agency and the Ouray Agency were consolidated[1].
