The Southern Ute Indian Tribe has a rich cultural tradition and holds several events throughout the year to keep these traditions alive.
Each Spring we celebrate the Ute Bear Dance. These events are open to the public and we hope you will join us during Memorial Day Weekend.
In mid-Summer, we participate in the Sun Dance, the most important spiritual ceremony in the Ute community.
Annual Southern Ute Tribal Fair
The second weekend in September we hold the Annual Southern Ute Tribal Fair and Powwow. The public is welcome to join us for dance, drum and fair contests.
Southern Ute Royalty promote a positive image of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe throughout Indian country and in the local community.
We maintain a close relationship with our brothers and sisters in the Northern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute tribes.
(Northern) Ute Tribe
The Ute Tribe is located on the Uintah and Ouray reservation in Northeastern Utah approximately 150 miles east of Salt Lake City on US Highway 40. The reservation is located within a three-county area known as the “Uintah Basin”. It is the second largest Indian Reservation in the United States that covers over 4.5 million acres.
Ute Mountain Ute Tribe
The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe’s reservation lies in Southwest Colorado, Southeast Utah, and Northern New Mexico. There are two communities on the Ute Reservation; the tribal headquarters in Towaoc, Colorado and the small community at White Mesa, Utah.
