N7 Night honors Native athletes at FLC
Families, tribal leaders and athletes attended the Nike N7 Basketball games at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo., Sunday, Nov. 21. The event was sponsored and held by Fort Lewis College to honor and highlight Native American Heritage Month. Dozens of audience members watched both the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams play while wearing the classic Nike N7 turquoise jerseys. Only 12 select collegiate programs have been asked to wear the jerseys in celebration of Native American Heritage Month. Leadership from both Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute tribes attended the games; heritage dancers made a special halftime performance.
