Golden High School students once again visited the Southern Ute Reservation, on the southwest leg of their annual Senior Seminar. The students visited departments within the tribal organization, including the Sky Ute Casino Resort and Growth Fund. The students visited the Tribe for two-days and met with staff and employees, learning about Ute culture and traditions, as well as the services tribal departments provides for the tribal membership. The students have visited the Southern Ute Tribe every spring since 2012.
