Jeremy Wade Shockley | The Southern Ute Drum

Southern Ute tribal elder Lynda Grove-D’Wolf gives a formal presentation of her new Ute language software in the Leonard C. Burch Building on Monday, March 18. The program, titled Kavia Naccie Nu-u-apa ga-pi (“The Mountain Utes Language”), is the first of a five-CD set which will teach a basic vocabulary of Ute words and phrases leading into sentence structure later installments. Created in conjunction with local software designers, the program uses voice tracks to help familiarize listeners with Ute words and their pronunciation. “[I am] passionate about saving the language,” D’Wolf said. Each disc will sell for $125. Call D’Wolf at 970-769-3395 for more information.
