In September 1879, Utes at the White River Indian Agency revolted, killing agent Nathan Meeker and the agency staff. The violence had been provoked by Meeker's poor treatment of the Utes. Today, informative signage is posted at the site of the incident, along the White River near the town of Meeker.
