The Southern Ute Drum
Students, tribal leaders and youth attended events at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo. on Friday, Nov. 15. The events were sponsored and held by Fort Lewis to highlight Native American Heritage Month. The Southern Ute Education Department took a group of high school students to attend presentations and panels that feature the work of indigenous students. They were also able to meet one on one with players from the Women’s Basketball team and toured the KDUR radio station on campus. To end the eventful day, the students watched the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams play while wearing the Nike N7 turquoise jerseys that only 12 select collegiate programs have been asked to wear in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
