Vital Statistics Division
The Southern Ute Vital Statistics Division’s duty is to serve the tribal membership and to protect the Tribe’s cultural identity by ensuring the accuracy and integrity of all enrolled members information is secure and protected.
The Vital Statistics Clerk provides tribal members information as needed. Most services are free of charge; however, contact the Vital Statistics Clerk to verify if there is charge and the amount or for more information regarding any of these services.
