Ute PowWow this Saturday

Colorado State University Extension is hosting a mini-powwow this Saturday from 9:00 to 4:00 at the Ute Learning Garden on the Mesa County fairgrounds. Tours of the garden, which features plants used by the Utes, will be given through the day. You'll have the opportunity to visit the nugan (the Ute word for tipi), view the wickiups and cooking hearths, and see demonstrations of flint knapping and corn grinding.

 At 11:00 and 2:00, there will be traditional Ute singing and dancing courtesy of members of the Ute Indian Nation. There is a silent auction of six works of art by Ute artists Kessley LaRose and Robert Colorow; proceeds go to support the Learning Garden.

Admission is free; donations are gratefully accepted. Please plan to join us for a fun and informative day!
