THE BLACK HAWK WAR: UTAH'S FORGOTTEN TRAGEDY
Researched and produced by Phillip B Gottfredson
2005 Mr. Gottfredson was commissioned by the Utah State Division of Indian Affairs to make a documentary
film of the Black hawk War. The project was Funded in part by Utah
State Division of Indian Affairs, the George S. Deloris Dori Eccles
Foundation and Private Donors.
"I discontinued production of the film when I discovered through my on-going research of the Black Hawk War that there are major contradictions, and inaccuracies in the histories of Utah. For example, historians mistakenly identified the Timpanogos Nation as being Ute Indians. This revelation alone completely changed the accuracy of the film project, and had I continued I would have added to the confusion that already exists in Utah's history, something I was not willing to be a participant in. "I confess, I was a victim of Mormon propaganda and convoluted history" Phillip B Gottfredson. See Mistaken Identity of Timpanogos & Ute Tribes
