The Ute natives of Colorado had a word, Uncompaghre that translates to "red water Spring." When the Hayden Survey arrived in the San Juan Mountains in 1873, the Utes were about to lose 3.7 million acres of their land to the government via the Brunot Agreement, Including 14,321-foot Uncompahgre Peak.
Since history is always written by the victorious in battles and land disputes, this story is rarely told.
