Ute Tribe hopes to resolve dispute over sacred site

The Ute Tribe of Utah held a meeting to discuss the fate of a hatchery that is located at a sacred site.

The tribe started the Big Springs Tribal Fish Hatchery 17 years ago. But tribal members say tribal leaders haven't listened to their concerns until recently.

A tribal judge halted construction in hopes of resolving the dispute. At least one tribal leader suggested that a new project might need to be started.
