Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah: Indian Peaks Band of Paiutes
Indian Peaks; (Kwee’choovunt) Peak People - Soul, Spirit, or Heart
The Indian Peaks Band of Paiute Indians of Utah originally received federal recognition on August 2, 1915. On
that date, President Woodrow Wilson signed Executive Order No. 2229, which reserved public domain land in Beaver County,
Utah "for the permanent use and occupancy of two certain bands of Paiute Indians."
The old Paiute campsite is about one-quarter of a mile southeast of the twentieth century village
site that was torn down by the Utah Fish and Game when they took over Indian Peak.
