Share article to

In the 1860s, Mears became the official trader with the Ute Indians. He learned to speak Ute, became friends with Ute leader Ouray (pictured here with Mears), and in the 1870s helped negotiate several agreements that kept the peace in Colorado but resulted in the removal of the Utes.
