Ute mythology

The Ute are a tribe of Native Americans from the western United States.

Siats is a cannibalistic clown monster. Cin-an-ev is a wolf trickster and culture hero.

The Ute especially venerated a bear spirit, who occasionally went on killing sprees. Sunuwavi , a Ute hero, once rescued his people from this by finding the qumu , the bear's fire medicine (spiritual power), and covering it with water, thus ending the spirit's power.
