From the office of the Ute Mountain Ute Chairman
2020 Bear Dance Cancellation
On April 30, 2020, The Bear Dance Chiefs have made the decision to cancel the [Ute Mountain Ute] Bear Dance Celebration for this year, due to the COVID 19 virus.
The [Ute Mountain Ute] Tribal Council agrees with their decision to cancel this year as well. The health and safety of the community is the most important concern for us.
When this epidemic has passed we plan to celebrate in the coming year.
Chairman, Ute Mountain Ute Indian Tribe
