Young dancers walk in single file alongside the Historic Durango & Silverton Narrow-gauge Railroad Train in August 2009 after it reached its destination at Cascade. Young Shyden Pinnecoose leads the dancers, who participated in a mini-powwow for a group of visiting tourists as part of the first annual Heritage Train event.
Looking back on the Southern Ute Reservation in 2009, milestones were reached and other dreams just began. The Animas-La Plata Project finally opened after almost a century of work. The Tribe partnered with Solix Biofuels to create a plant to convert algae to energy. The first-ever Tri-Ute Games were hosted right here in Ignacio. We review the highlights in the most recent issue of the Southern Ute Drum Online.
The full retrospective can be viewed on page six and seven of this weeks issue. Links have been updated.
