Six years after the Indians Reorganization Act of 1934, the Weenuche Band at Ute Mountain Ute Reservation organized a tribal government and enacted a tribal constitution (Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, 1985). The Weenuche Band became the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe.
The governing body of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe is the Tribal Council consisting of seven members. The Council is elected by popular vote of Tribal membership. The Chairman of the Tribal council is selected through popular vote for a three year term. The Council governs the Reservation and manages a tribal government.
Most of the administrative positions are staffed by Tribal employees.
Funds to run the Tribal government are provided by the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and by contractual agreements with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Department of Health and Human Services, and Indian Health Services.
The Tribe is structured as a Federal Corporation that may be used for business purposes in developing financial growth and Tribal economy.
