The University of Colorado-Denver brought students from the International College of Beijing to visit the Southern Ute Indian Reservation during spring break as part of a volunteer and education course. Students offered a helping hand at the Ignacio Senior Center, the Ignacio Elementary School, and the Southern Ute Education Department. On Thursday, March 28, students visited the Southern Ute Cultural Center & Museum, where the Culture Department gave them a hands-on workshop on beading their own Ute chokers. Students also paid a visit to Southern Ute Tribal Council later in the day to introduce themselves and learn about the governmental workings of the tribe.
