  • Did all Ute Indians speak the Shoshone language?

Like the Comanche, the Goshute, and the Paiute, the Ute are of Shoshonean Linguistic stock.  As it was with all other American Indian tribes, the use of the traditional language eroded through the years and English is now spoken by all Ute.  The famous Ute chief Ouray was fluent in many Native dialects, and also spoke English, and Spanish.
