Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1837
Uintah County
Utah, USA
Death: 1850
Uintah County
Utah, USA

Son and first born child of Chief Walkara and his first wife, Saquina,"White Elk", daughter of Chief Fuchawana.

Little is known of Battee. Chief Walkara is quoted in Utah pioneer histories that he was unhappy with warring tribes of Utes who had also killed his son, Battee.

On February 20, 1850, Isaac Morley, the leader of settlements in southern Utah reported that, in a council meeting with Walkara, when Mr. Barney Ward brought news that conflicts between settlers and Indians were threatening peace in Utah Valley, Chief Walker stated,
"Let them fight it out...all is right; if your Big Captain does not interfere, I will not; the Utes are bad; they will not take my counsel; they have killed my son, Battee. I feel bad."

The date and location of Battee's death and burial have been lost to history. It was customary to bury in the foothills near the location of each settlement, or to use existing caves as tombs.
