The Ute people have thrived in the Rocky Mountains by using their systematic knowledge of ecosystems, plants, engineering and technology. Now, Ute elders have partnered with scientists to explore the connections between Ute knowledge and contemporary science. Experts from the three Ute tribes discuss the Ute STEM Project, funded by the National Science Foundation. In this project, Ute experts work with archaeologists, ethno-botanists and land managers to tell the history of Ute sites and landscapes in Colorado and help a new generation of Ute youth use science and traditional knowledge to understand the past and present.
