The Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, or “PITU” as it is often called, was created on April 3, 1980 by an act of Congress (25 U.S.C. § 761). The Tribe consists of five constituent bands: Cedar, Indian Peaks, Kanosh, Koosharem, and Shivwits.
The federal government formally recognizes the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah as an Indian Tribe located within the boundaries of the PITU Tribal Reservation.
