“The eagle takes flight in Ignacio”
In our permanent gallery you can... Explore early rock art left behind by the first Utes. Stroll through a camp scene reminiscent of days when the Utes roamed freely over their beloved mountains. Investigate the turmoil and anguish as the Ute people were placed on reservations and boarding schools. Finally, take a look into how the modern Utes have transformed themselves into one of the most industrious tribes in America. In this outstanding interactive exhibit space, words, sounds, images and priceless artifacts bring history vividly to life. Tribal members have loaned many of the artifacts and many are on view to the public for the very first time. Visitors to SUCCM will find an incredible architectural facade overlooking the Los Pinos River. Once inside, museum guests will have the opportunity to experience the rich culture of the Southern Ute Tribe through permanent galleries, rotating exhibits, multimedia installations, outdoor experiences, a research library, classrooms, and meeting spaces for Tribal and community functions. Known for their intricate beadwork, color combinations, and design, the Southern Utes have a rich tradition of craftsmanship and artwork that is prominently displayed at the museum along with many other artifacts that display the daily life of the Southern Ute Tribe of yore.
