In the very old days,The Sleeping Ute Mountain was a Great Warrior God. He came to help fight against the Evil Ones who were causing much trouble.
A tremendous battle between the Great Warrior God and the Evil One followed. As they stepped hard on the earth and braced themselves to fight, their feet pushed the land into mountains and valleys. This is how the country of this region came to be as it is today.
The Great Warrior God was hurt, so he lay down to rest and fell into a deep sleep. The blood from his wound turned into living water for all creatures to drink.
When the fog or clouds settle over The Sleeping Warrior God, it is a sign that he is changing his blankets for the four seasons. When the Indians see light green blanket they know it is spring. The dark green blanket is summer, the yellow and red one is fall and the white one is winter.
The Indians believe that when the clouds gather on the highest peak, the Warrior god is pleased with his people and is letting rain clouds slip from his pockets. They also believe that the Great Warrior God will rise again to help them in the fight against their enemies.
From Legends and Children's Stories of the Ute Tribe.
