You are standing on ground once considered a part of the “traditional” hunting and fishing grounds of the Ute Indians.

During the 19th century, tensions multiplied when white settlers began to hunt, fish, farm and fence these traditional areas. Between 1853 and 1872, many people were killed in battles for this land and its resources.

In 1873, a Mormon delegation arrived at Fish Lake to make peace with the Utes. This treaty, signed along the southwestern shores of Fish Lake, has never been broken.

Today, fish Lake is visited and enjoyed by people from many cultures. To protect this beautiful lake and its resources, learn from the wisdom of those who used this land before you. Dispose of your garbage properly and practice proper hunting and fishing etiquette.

This marker is located at Fish Lake very near the marker Peace Treaty with Fish Lake Indians.
