Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy Students with help form the Culture Department began making their own ribbon dresses and shirts for Bear Dance next month. Mark Archuleta (left) and Kaycee Jefferson measure out the ribbon to be used on their garments.
Students were allowed to design their dresses and shirts to their own liking. Autumn Sage places green ribbon on her flower-printed dress as guide Mari Jo Owens helps Dominique Rael with her dress.
Vincent Naranjo works on sewing the ribbon onto his ribbon shirt Friday, April 22 at the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum.
