The Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy hosted a cultural workshop on Thursday, April 9. Ute language teacher, Georgia McKinley and academy teachers came together to discuss visual projects that would help the students understand the Ute language. The workshop has been happening since 2000, and involves field trips, guest speakers, and other cultural activities. McKinley teaches the class daily and has stated that it’s important to teach the language to youth at a young age.
Academy teacher, Bernadine Tso, shares ideas with MicKinley on how her project will help students learn about the Ute language.
Academy teachers assemble visual projects for the students to interact with. Each project involves education of the Ute language.
