This portrait studio print with the simple caption "Ute Indians" includes six women and children. The photographer and location, "C.R. Savage, Salt Lake City, Utah," are all that identify this fascinating image. The female figures are clad in a mixture of Indian and White clothes, as are two young children. The "frozen" expressions of these individuals, including the youngest child, leave many unanswered questions.

The C. Hart Merriam Collection of Native American Photographs contains 4,462 photographic prints created and gathered by C. Hart Merriam, in his efforts to document California Indian tribes and to research Native American languages. The images in this collection depict individuals, dwellings, artifacts, and related geographic regions.
