Southern Ute tribal elder Lynda D’Wolf passes out new materials to the Director of the Southern Ute Education Department, LaTitia Taylor and other participants of the Ute Language class, Friday, March 6. The class is held in the Chief Ignacio conference room each week; class is offered every Friday to tribal members, employees and community members to help them learn the Ute language.
Students in the language class focus intently on learning new phrases, food items and numbers, which were introduced that week by Southern Ute tribal elder, Lynda D’Wolf. The classes will continue into the month of April, where a test will then be given on the all the materials covered since January. Classes will resume in June, focusing on sentence structure.
