My name is Autumn Rain Sage and I am the 2018-2019 Jr. Miss Southern Ute. My Ute name is Pachukwi (River Otter) and I am 14 years old. I attend Ignacio High school and I am in the ninth grade. My parents are Roger Sage Jr. and Lynnette Sage. This will be my final quarterly royalty report as my reign will be ending in September. I would like to update the Southern Ute tribal community on the events and powwows that I have attended.

I would like to say thank you to the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, the Royalty Committee and my family for supporting me during my reign as Jr. Miss Southern Ute.
