Message from Project Director: "We sincerely appreciate your dedication and interest in joining us for this significant occasion. Your support and enthusiasm have been invaluable throughout this journey, and we cannot wait to share this moment with you. You will have the chance to meet elders, artists, tribal leaders, and community members from the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe. To promote healing, we ask that you listen, that you absorb the art and read the literature (handouts and wall of gallery). We are also officially asking the media, the public, and historians to stop using the words "Posey's War" and "Last Indian War" when referring to the events of 1923. It was not a war. We ask that people sit with these stories and consider what kind of name would better reflect this Ute experience to allow us all to heal as we move forward."
