Chipeta: Ute Peacemaker - A 'Now You Know' Bio

Updated on April 16, 2018

Life Stories for Young Scholars - a book by Cynthia S. Becker

This book is dedicated to: "The children of Colorado. May you learn to love history and the people who lived it."

The silver sticker on the book notes that it, Cynthia S. Becker and her book for children, "Chipeta: Ute Peacemaker," was a Finalist for the Willa Literary Award from Women Writing The West.

The image is of my author signed copy of the book. I highly recommend this book for Homeschoolers as well as any young people wanting to learn more authentic information about life in the western USA during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. This book is well researched and written especially for younger readers. An adult biography of "Chipeta: Queen of the Utes" by Cynthia S. Becker and P. David Smith is also available; it was the source for the young reader bio.

This blog contains many useful and interesting posts regarding the research and writings on this subject by Cynthia Becker. I strongly recommend your review of this blog.

How much did you know, before this lens, about the Utes? - Please get these books and learn more

Had you heard of Chipeta and her husband, Chief Ouray before?

Chipeta, also known as White Singing Bird (1843/4-1924), was born a Kiowa Apache but raised by the Utes in Colorado

She worked for peace by lobbying in the U.S. Congress as a representative of the Ute people.

Ouray (Arrow) (1833-1880) was a chief of the Uncompahgre band of the Ute Tribe. He testified before Congress in 1880. Ouray was born in what is now New Mexico.

      We have a road called Ouray in Albuquerque. Now I know where the name came from. These look like interesting books. I also enjoyed the other Ouray lenses. Thanks
