Ever the consummate businessman, in 1895 Tammen became the co-owner and co-editor of the DenverPost and in 1917, when Buffalo Bill Cody died inDenver, Tammen offered Cody's widow $10,000 for theprivilege of burying him there, resulting in a funeralprocession of over 50,000 people. This handsome photograph of the Ute Indian tribe was in alllikelihood produced by another photographer of the period andsubsequently printed by Tammen. Residing primarily inColorado and Utah, the tribe never existed as a unifiedbody, instead consisting of various nomadic bands who keptin close communication with neighboring groups. Unlikemany of the other tribes in the region, there exists noevidence or tradition of migration between what is now Colorado andUtah; ancestors of the Ute seem to have been residing in the areafor about 1000 years. Jackson, whilephotographing on the U.S. Geological Survey expedition toUtah in 1877, noted that the "Utah," "Utas" or "Yutas"were brave and hardy. This oversize photograph representsa significant and important record of established tribalcommunities before and during a period of great conflict andassimilation, forever altering Native Americans'relationships with their land and country.
