The Uintah tribe (Yoowetum, Yoovwetuh, Uinta-at, later called Tavaputs), once a small band of the Ute people, and now is a tribe of multiple bands of Utes that were classified as Uintahs by the U.S. government when they were relocated to the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation.[1] The bands included the San Pitch, Pahvant, Seuvartis, Timpanogos and Cumumba Utes.[2]

Uintahs lived between Utah Lake to the Uintah Basin of the Tavaputs Plateau near the Grand-Colorado River-system.[1]
