Title: "The Utes Must Go!" Book Review
Author: Fields, Alison
Subject: Peter Decker
Date: 2008
Publisher: Duke University Press
Citation: Ethnohistory, Vol. 55, No. 3 (Summer, 2008), pp. 499-500
Description: Peter Decker has held many public roles in Colorado, from commissioner of agriculture to chair of the board of trustees for Fort Lewis College. But it was a discovery that occurred on his own ranch that caused him to delve into the state's history. Coming across several arrowheads while repairing a fence, he wondered about the band of Utes who once lived and hunted on his property. How long had they been here, and what forces drove them from western Colorado? On lands now dominated by cattle ranches and ski resorts, why did so few current residents have real knowledge of this past? Focusing on the period from the mid-i8oos to the Utes' forced departure in 1881, Decker investigates these questions in "The Utes Must Go!"
