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