Maykah! Greetings from the SUCCM Staff. We are so excited to welcome you back to the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum on September 7th.  Although we have been quiet, we have been working hard this past year during COVID. We’ve got some new things that we can’t wait to share with you. When we reopen, please come to see our new library; the redesigned Gift Shop; and Inside Out 2.0, our new temporary exhibit.  

We’ve also been taking care of things behind the scenes. For example, with the help of our colleagues in Property and Facilities, we upgraded the electronic readers we use to monitor humidity, temperature, and lighting in our exhibit cases. We’ve also developed a strategic plan and have lots of ideas for new programs such as revitalizing our native gardens and creating a consignment program for artists.  

We will also be introducing planning monthly workshops and programs for kids, families, and adults. In September, we will be offering classes to the public about powwows and regalia as a part of History Live! a regional, month-long effort to promote culture and learning and launch a new story hour for young kids every Tuesday morning. 

We are honored to serve you in such a warm and welcoming place. We hope that you will come and enjoy it too.  

The Museum’s team includes: Venessa Carel, Tallias Cantsee, Susan Cimburek, Brianne Goodtracks-Alires, and SkyDawn Moccasin-Flower. If you have questions or suggestions, we would love to hear from you at museum@southernute-nsn.gov
