The Southern Ute Tribal Council received a donation request for a Women’s Sundance. We believe requests relating to the Sundance should be deferred to the Sundance Chief and Sundancers prior to any such donation request being approved by Tribal Council. Collectively, the Southern Ute Tribal Council does not support deviating from the currently supported Sundance. Dedicating Tribal resources towards sponsoring a Women’s Sundance conflicts with our Ute traditions and beliefs.
