Timpanog tribe

The Timpanogs were a tribe of the Ute people who lived in what today is Utah Valley. They were the most important band of the Utes.[1] They have also been referred to as the Timpiavats.[2] It is likely that the tribe's first contact with anyone of European descent was Spanish Franciscan missionaries during what is now known as the Dominguez-Escalante Expedition of 1776.

In 1865 they numbered 300. This was after Latter-day Saints had settled in much of their original territory, the Walker War had caused deaths among them, and their population had declined owing to disease.

They lived on fish and on the seeds of wild plants.
