We are all greatly interested in the gulls, for they saved the wheat fields in the spring of 1848. The gull has been known to the Ute Indian for ages. These birds were inmates of the home of the Great Spirit, which was an island in the Blue Sea toward the setting sun. Their color was of the clouds, for wherever animals live, their color partakes of the nature of their surroundings. So with the gull. They came from the snow and cloud lands beyond, and were always regarded as birds from the mystic world of the Great Spirit.
