On Friday, May 27, the Southern Ute, Ute Mountain Ute, Northern Ute and Comanche tribes gathered at the Southern Ute Museum & Cultural Center in honor of Ute Nation Day – commemorating all the tribes for collaborating on a peace treaty signed in 1977. During the 1700s, the Ute and Comanche tribes began peace negotiations as immigrants began moving in from New Mexico and Eastern Colorado. The Comanche Peace Treaty was introduced to ensure peace between the tribal allies that reigned over the southwestern plains. However, peace talks were interrupted and a fifty-year war followed. Peace talk between the tribes reemerged in 1977, and the treaty was finalized.
