Ute Indian Bands, Gens and Clans

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes.

Akanaquint (green river). A Ute division formerly living on Green r., Utah, belonging probably to the Yampa.

Capote (mountain people. Hrdlicka). A division of the Ute, formerly living in the Tierra Amarilla and Rio Chama country, N. w. N. Mex. They are now under the jurisdiction of the Southern Ute school in s. w. Colo., and numbered 180 in 1904.

Cobardes. Given by Dominguez and Escalante (Doc. Hist. Mex., 2d s., i, 537, 1854) as one of 5 divisions of the Ute in 1776, and subdivided into the Huascari, Parusi, Yubuincariri, Ytimpabichi, and Pagampache. Some of these appear to be Ute and some Paiute.
