Southern Ute Brave

Mique, my name is Levi Justin Lopez. I am the 2018-2019 Southern Ute Brave. My parents are Megan Watts and Davidson Lopez. I have one sister, Patience and one brother, Melleno. My maternal grandparents are the late Margaret Hummingbird Red and Rodney Red. My paternal grandparents are Leann and Reggie Lopez of Towaoc, Colo.

I am six years old and I attend the first grade at the Ignacio Elementary School. I like to play outside, play video games, sing powwow songs and play with my little brother.

I received my banner at the 2018 Southern Ute Tribal Fair and Powwow. I am honored to be the Southern Ute Brave for the Southern Ute Indian Tribe. I thank the Royalty Committee and my family for helping me learn to be a good representative for my people. I look forward to attending different powwows and events.
