Ute Indian Museum Exhibt

Written On the Land

In the summer of 2017, the Ute Indian Museum reopened with renovations, expanded exhibit space, and a newly enriched exhibit. This exhibit, the product of over three years of work and consultation with the three Ute tribes, —the longest continuous residents of Colorado. In the exhibits, visitors take a journey to iconic places across Colorado to learn the story of Ute life, history and culture. Told in the voices of tribal members, the exhibits include contemporary views of Ute life, including cultural survival, political self-determination, economic opportunity and the celebration of the Bear Dance.
