Health and Schools Uintah Ouray Reservation 1913

The Annual Report of the Commission of Indian Affairs for 1913 shows a slowly decreasing population on the Unitah Ouray reservation.

During the fiscal year 1913-1914 there were 48 births and 62 deaths on the Uintah Ouray Reservation. Twenty deaths were due to tuberculosis and 14 were children under the age of three years.

One hundred twenty families lived in permanent housing while 150 families lived in tents or tepees in the traditional manner.

There were 238 children eligible to attend school but only 147 were actually enrolled. Eighty-two children attended residential boarding schools – they lived at the school and came home to visit as allowed. Thirty children attended a non-residential boarding school. There were no children attending a day school on the reservation. Thirty-five children apparently lived near enough to a town to attend public school off the reservation.
