Terminated Mixed Bloods Fighting to Get "UN-Terminated"

Take a look at the website of the Mixed Blood Uintas

The Terminated Mixed-Blood Uinta's Of the Ute Indian Tribe"
"Felter vs. Kempthorne"
Their Legal Action to Repeal"The Ute Partition Act"
"The Terminated Mixed-Blood's have been and are being ignored in the vain hope that time and attrition would banish them to the void."
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....
This failed policy called termination, carried out in the early 1950's, was a policy of assimilating American Indians into main stream American society, assimilation designed to force American Indians out of their culture and told to forget their history.
