Go Nuchu! Ute Tribe Featured During Utah Football Halftime Show

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown October 20th, 2015 Last Updated on: October 20th, 2015

The University of Utah athletics teams are known as the Utes, but they have a long-standing and positive relationship with the Ute tribe to use the nickname. The university works with the tribe instead of against them, what a brilliant concept!

Fox13News reports that:

Ute history in this area runs deep, about 1,000 years.

The University of Utah works with the Tribal Business Committee to make sure everyone knows that. The tribe and university have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to lay out what the college does in order to carry the Ute name.

It includes items like outreach to tribal members and tribal youth, as well as steps to honor the tribe through different avenues, like recognizing Native American Heritage Month.

The Ute tribe shared song, dance and friendship with the crowd of college football fans this past weekend. Watch the video below!

Thank you to the Ute tribe for traveling to tonight's Utah Football game! We are Ute Proud! #goutes
