Storytime with elders

Southern Ute elder Marjorie Borst regaled her audience with a tale from an African safari, where she fell and unknowingly broke her foot, which was wrapped and bandaged for the remainder of the two-week expedition — only to find out it was fractured once she returned home at the end of the trip. The doctor said she must be one tough “cookie.”
Southern Ute elder, Luana Herrera was one of the many participants at last week’s Sip, Chat and Chew to open up and tell stories from their youth; some told personal stories, while others shared traditional Ute tales, Friday, Feb. 25 at the Southern Ute Multi-Purpose Facility.
