The Southern Ute Cultural Preservation Department has collaborated with various tribal entities to organize educational events, this performance was one of many set to occur this month.
Visiting Bird Dancers proudly shared their individual style with members of the audience and encouraged attendees to dance along. The dancers adorn silk shawls, beadwork, and intricate ribbon skirts while they move in time with each song.
