“Yearly, the Ute bands together near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. In ancient time the Grand River provided protection for the people to live and practice their beliefs. This strong Ute woman waits for her ceremonial dance wearing her regalia that is made of buckskin and trad beads, all of which are most meaningful to her. The mist appears often during summer nights and leaves the valley and mountains beautiful.”
