Ute Tribe Language Immersion Class

The heritage of the Ute Tribe has deep historical meaning and importance for the Uintah Basin and the deadline is nearly here for a class committed to a crucial aspect of it. The first of its kind, a Ute language immersion class is being piloted and is anticipated to start on February 6th. The Ute language program is inviting committed language learners that are willing to make daily strides toward Ute language fluency to be part of this course. This applies to tribal members and descendants from beginner to advanced levels. The priority for this class will be for potential Ute language teachers and families that use the language in their homes and community. The course is designed to be an accelerated fluency class and will last through the end of the school year in May. Any tribal members and descendants are invited to register by February 2nd. For more information, call 722-2331.
