Mixed Blood Uintas Losing Battle of Attrition to Federal Government

When you have the full force of the United States Government trying to exterminate your people, it's difficult to mount a defense of your history and ancestors.   Here's a story about the Mixed Blood Uintas, who were terminated by our government.

Here's a link to their website

In this website is chronicled the history of the Ute Partition Act of 1954 (UPA) and the effects it has had on the Terminated mixed blood members of the Uinta band of Ute's and their action to repeal the "UPA". Read and learn the true facts about the Discrimination brought upon 490 once independent, self-supporting, productive American Indian's, who were reduced to welfare rolls in less then ten years.

No Unique Group of Americans illustrates the vulgarity of a failed federal policy more than the Mixed-Blood Uinta's of Utah. Who were once full members of the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation located in northeastern Utah and who find themselves "non grata" in the land of their birth...

A Government policy called termination, carried out in the early 1950's. A policy of assimilating American Indians into main stream American society which was allowed to go "awry". Assimilation designed to force American Indians out of their culture and told to forget their history.

Why have scholars and the mainstream media avoided the saga of the Mixed-Blood Uinta’s? Your first thought would be this doesn't happen in America, would seem the most obvious. But the real reason this story is ignored simply because they are not considered Indian enough and is a kind of “racial dualism” that is deeply rooted in Anglo-American thought, and this dualism carries over into scholarly dichotomies of “Indian and white.” (Warren Metcalf’s “Terminations Legacy” page 3) But the real reason is the vast amount of wealth powerful non-Indian individuals (Grifter's) and entities are receiving, surreptitiously, under the UPA by chicanery and claiming titular which is a canard!

There's a lot to learn from there site.   Please take a look

I think the last paragraph of the story isn't written for the average reader or the author is trying to show off how smart he is. I did learn a couple of new words though because I never seen the words "titular or canard" before.

I think there is much more to the website than just one story with an expanded vocabulary.

The government has thus far been successful at wiping out an Indian tribe. We should be concerned for the Uintas history.
